Unlocked by AndreIllustrates Unlocked by AndreIllustrates
This is a personal work.

It started as a small sketch, and over two months, not on a daily basis i've working on this pic.
I have never spent so much time on a digital painting and now i feel it really worth the effort.
My idea regarding this work was to try to visualize somehow how a person's "heart" can be unlocked and the wounds that other relationships created are healed.
The tatoos on her are to remind her of something that she might have learned with other relations.
The rockabilly style on the tatoos are just because i really like the kind of tatoos and i guess they suit the purpose.
Too many hours watching Miami Ink on tv and watching Shawn Barber work regarding tatoos are also the reason behind this work.
It was done using Corel Painter IX initially and then i switched to the X version wich helped me a lot blending the colors because of the real bristle feature.
The arm and the hand holding the key were really hard to got it righ (i still not happy with it).

I loved the time i spent doing it and had a lot a lot of fun.
And i hope you enjoy it too!

I like how her face is "front and center" because it's so well done and so expressive, but then when you "look closer" you find there's so much more to this piece than just portraying the person.
Gostei muito!

great pic, it looks like its gouache instead of digital.
Your right about the hand and arm but i dont think it detracts from the picture

The texture on her face is absolutely amazing. Really good. I think her dress lets this piece down a bit, though; it doesn't have the same detail that the rest of it does. It needs some sort of clothy texture, and maybe some really little creases/wrinkles. Also, I think her hair could do with some sharp highlights, because it's currently looking a bit too smooth and blurred.

But still, really really cool. The concept is awesome too.

I've done a texture to the her dress, but because i was zooming to much i didn't notice that just does not appears. :( :(
I agree with you on the hair.

did you paint it with Painter IX? what tools did you used? i recently adquired Painter X ;)
Reply
:iconandreillustrates:
AndreIllustrates Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks!
I started with Painter IX and the when then switched to the X version.
The tools i've used were mainly Oils Brush, a smeary round, both on IX and X, the diference is that on X version i've used the Real Bristle feature wich helped me a lot.
I've used a Wet acrilic brush to the hair and a blender to the background, the grainy water, that let's the paper texture came out.

Are you happy with the version X? i'm loving it hehe
