    Ghost of Christmas Past WIP

    Yesterday I totally understood what "Art Rage" meant. I was totally taken by this rage to paint and I knew only this beloved little proggy could satisfy me.

    The lines were done in Photoshop but all the coloring was done in Art Rage. The hair was the best part - doing the base layer color, then the light strings - the darker ones - I looooooved the process.

    But now I am stuck with those damn flowers. I wanted to do the Christmas Red flowers (don't know their name - sorry) but with a candy cane feel and color.

    This is like an attempt but it Highly sucks!

    Andy tip or advice is welcomed.


    Thanks guys - love you lots.

    Hey jenninjax

    thanks for commenting

    I started Friday around 3pm - worked until midnight ; then worked from 8 am to midnight again on Saturday and from 8 to 3pm on Sunday - when I finally finished it

    you do the maths ! I spent a lot of time doing the stencils in Photoshop - then using them in art rage -

    the hair was the most demanding part : I did a base dark brown 100% metalic with brush pressure and big (so that we had the hair like texture) and on that I applied with the smallest size and lighter color the highlights on 3 different layers and finally in black (same settings) the black - darker lines to create the depth.

    oh and yeah - all mouse work

    ^___^ thank you for appreciating and commenting

    the final product is in the gallery with link to my deviant art account where I also have a wallpaper and the print
