Study of one of Roberto Ferri's paintings. I just recently discovered him and fell in love with his work. If you dont know who he is, you should look him up.

Painted in one sitting. I had a lot of fun with this one.

Thanks for looking! Don't forget to join me on facebook!: [link]

This looks absolutely awesome!
The only thing that looks a bit odd (to me) is her left leg. It feels like you should have shown a little bit of her knee just to prove its there because at it is, it looks like she's missing a leg.

I love Roberto Ferri too, what an artist!!! Your work it's pretty amazing. The hand holding the girl's thigh makes me think in Bernini's sculpture "The Rape of Proserpina". Congrats!!

after laying in the initial colors, use a soft brush with a very low opacity and very careful, deliberate strokes to blend.  Either that, or use a smudge tool.

I love how you managed to make this digital piece look like you had painted it in oil.

thanks! Major respect for Ferri though, he works all in oil. I'm not that good with oil yet.

I love oils! Once you get the hang of them it's really hard going back because even if you go wrong, you can paint and repaint until you get it right! :D And they smell so good! ;P

I hadn't realised these were digital until now! even more wow! You see, i find digital painting much harder :doh:

:iconhoustonsharp:
HoustonSharp Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013
digital painting itself is actually much easier because it is so forgiving and predictable. It's just challenging because of the program and figuring out how to treat it like an art medium. Once you get the hang of it though, you'll find oils MUCH harder.

:iconlittletallthing:
LittleTallThing Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013
haha! But then again you can day the same about oils.
I don't know, maybe the program I use is not as good as yours....and my pen tablet is pretty old...

Yes! Roberto Ferri is so inspiring, and such an amazing artist.
And you are too! I love this.
I especially love the lighting and how it really looks like the man is gripping beautiful rippling flesh.
So amazing! AH!
