jasmine by jtgraffix jasmine by jtgraffix
photoshop cs3
5 hours

confession. the previous jasmine drawings on my old account were paint overs. not real matte painting techniques.

sooo....this is my first attempt at a true matte painting technique. side by side comparison...

it's a birthday gift to the singer who turns 21 on november 3rd. she WILL be receiving this from the street team so i'm excited to hear her reaction. haha!

i do think that she looks a little thinner and angular in the drawing compared to the reference image: [link]

whatever. i like the results

EDIT:

fixed the chin and jaw. NOW i like the results...haha!

It's interesting...I don't know if it was intentional or not, but you brought down her eyebrows and made her look much softer, intense still but in a different kind of mood...you also lightened the shadows on her face which adds to that. It looks nice overall. :)
