I decided to finally try out Painter and do a digital painting. Not quite what I had in my head, but it was a good practice piece. It's not complete but I'm going to move on. This is really not what I wanted to do. I didn't really mean for it to come out so "realistic", but instinctively I always want to achieve realism. As a teenager, my goal was photo-realism. But I find my realistic style so boring that I now fight with myself. This time I was paying too much attention to how the software works that I didn't put up much of a fight. It didn't help that I ended up relying of photo references so much. Oh well, tomorrow is another battle!
This piece is also for Illustration Friday theme - Magnify. I really enjoyed painting the magnified eye through the glass.
