View Full Version : Anthony Hopkins - Artrage/Illustrator

04-19-2012, 11:20 AM
I started this in Illustrator and then moved it to Artrage to do the blending and enhance details. I find this works best for me. I've tried painting straight-up before but I could never progress past a certain point in my work.

I'm still not where I want to be, but I'm moving forward.

Moving forward is good. But this really looks like him. Fine painting.

Nicely done. My wafe said almost looks like a photo.

Thanks. I tend to go back and forth between raster (Artrage) and vector. I guess the vector would be considered my underpainting.

This is how far I got with vector:

Oops. It's telling me I have to post more in order to post URLs. I will show you the vector version when I have posted more.

Well You did pretty well! The likeness is impressive and You seem to have pursued a very cold form of technical perfection probably in order to deprive him of a specific personality (since he's such a great and flexible actor to play any character) and You used a sort of topological sketching of planes or rather level curves on his face.

Outstanding and thanks for the glimpse inside your workflow...

I really like the first one where you seem to have created a great depth in the contours of the face to give an almost 3d effect.
Well done.

really amazing work... not many go from vector to raster images especially for portraits.. it gives a very clean and smooth look to the finished work..and a very attractive style.

Thank you. Much appreciated! It took a lot of frustration to find a work flow that works for me. :)
