Nancy Botwin by GlacierFusion Nancy Botwin by GlacierFusion
Played by Mary-Louise Parker on weeds. I fell in love with the expression when I first saw it, so I had to paint it. Curly hair like this is much easier (and funner) to paint than straight hair. Go figure. Anyways, this was done in 2 days as usual (haha I'm getting pretty good at this). And to be fair I used a grid for the sketch and the eye-dropper tool for colors, so take that as you will. Oh, and I made a few modifications to the original, such as her left (our right) arm, and the fact that she is no longer wearing any clothes =p

I saw this on ffffound.com and thought "what a great photo!" which led me back to here. Jesus, you've got talent. May I ask what your process is briefly? :)

Haha thank you :)

Hmm, if I recall, I used a grid to draw it out with pencil, scanned it in, then painted it in photoshop. It's a little tricky to explain the painting process, but it involves heavy use of the eye-dropper tool (alt key).

I have a few time lapse videos that demonstrate the process on my vimeo page: [link]

If there's anything specific that you'd like to know please don't hesitate to ask : )
