Phoenix by Ashley-Q Phoenix by Ashley-Q

General Information


I just had to give this contest a shot. :)

EDIT
I sadly didn't make it to the semi-finalists, but that's okay. :) The contest definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone and I think this is probably one of my best pieces to date. Thanks to everyone for their kind words and support, and best of luck to the semi-finalists!

Prints won't be made available here, but they are available at RedBubble.

Kinda' reminds me, in the most subtle of ways, of Drew Barrymore.
Regardless, its one of the most beautiful pieces I've seen since I've been on DA.
Your skill is unmatched.

I love the colors here. That fiery red hair is amazing and looks great against that stark skin tone.

I seriously do not know why this hasn't come a Daily Deviation yet, this is incredible and so gorgeous. The lighting, the facial structure, the colors, the highlights, simply everything. I'm so suggesting this as a Daily Deviation.

Thank you! :) No vector--There's a really cool ink splatter brush in Painter 11 that I used for the circles.

No actually. I referenced a picture of Natalie Portman for the jawline and nose, did my own thing with my eyes, and refed Karima Adebibe for the lips.

But thanks nonetheless! :)

I guess I didn't have to, but I downloaded brushes from `Dianae that I really liked. There was one in particular that had a nice transparency to it--It helped make the glow around her face very soft.
