Thank you both :D Yeah I googled Trump and found this one very characteristic:



Plus, I read some of those memes saying he had small hands (which I never noticed tbh) and then I saw a viceo clip of people in T-Rex costumes and BAM!! LOL I have to make one stand alone pic of T-Rump somewhere, it's just too good :D

I am working on a multiple wordpress site with blog and webcomic plugins btw, and after some struggle, I think I might be able to give some advice to whoever is getting started with it. Dunno where to put it in the forums though. Any of you on patreon btw?

IKR it looks AWESOME!!! But it was finding the right brushes and settings to make it look like this. I'll probarbly add some whte highlights right in the end when the whole composition is done.

Nicely done! I personally like how you did the shading. Love the textured look of the hair.
No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.

Thank you frozen :D I just realized I haven't updated my thread. So here is the Final of Damien, plus the next two portraits I made using the same techniques. The eyes are a bit too big, so I'll work on that next.







If you're interested, I could try making a tutorial with the next one :) I captured the process of Elaine and will make a speedpainting clip the next few days.

I've kept myself busy still searching for the style I'll stay with. These two are close to it, I think. Something is still not right, but I'm improving my colour skills :D

From just an outsider perspective, these look fantastically done. I really like the top one. The hair and facial expression really makes it pop.

Wow Gabryel your work is really amazing :)! I personally really like the Sashya one, the hair on that one is especially well done and very well detailed. Keep up the amazing work! :thumbsup:

I finished one new artwork yesterday and I'm really happy with this. It's a bit less manga-ish from the eyesize and such, and to be honest it started as a colour study but then I liked it so much I wanted to make more of it :D



And also new comics on my webcomic-site gabby-the-cat.kringelkatze.de, like this one :D



I can't stop thinking about alternatives for EVERYTHING, it's just too great LOL

Considering that it just snowed here recently, I can really relate to that chick. The coloration and everything about it looks so pretty. The only thing that strikes me as a little odd is that it looks like there's no shading on her skin, although that could be due to the reflected light from the snow.

Good work! I think don't worry if it manga like or not. Just make it the way you like it.
One thing tho, is the wool scarf and hat from real photo?

@MahluaandMilk: Yes the skin shading is supposed to look rather flat due to the duffise lighting from the surrounding snow.

@KeanFox: Yes and no, I had a photo reference for the hat, but drew the whole texture by hand. Once you get the "system", it's not too difficult. I then put the ink layer to colour burn and added a gray opacity mask layer to it to control the amount of the colour burn. Like that, it's very easy to get a nice textured shading :)
