I've made this piece to practice my skills with Photoshop to really understand the process of making high quality art. what I found was 5hr+ of simply locking myself in a room, drawing, staring at a screen, hearing nothing but clicks of my keyboard and occasionally taking a walk every 20+ mins.
that's when I started to understand that this isn't the fun kind of work I see other artist present. I ended up creating a illusion from speed-paints and positive attitudes that I went in blinded.
5hr+ for just a portrait. I'm starting to understand what it means. it takes dedication and most of all commitment. I've never been so proud with the result it even strokes my ego to feel like I did better than the original
It's an experience I feel every artist who wants to work their passion full-time should feel. It gives a perceptive of my own skills and the work it takes to reach full potential.
Thanks for reading.
