Venus (Final) by Cavale Venus (Final) by Cavale
Mouse & photoshop

Edit : It really wasn't my plan of editing this piece...I had considered it a done deal...BUT, Since many comments where agreeing on the facts that the hair looks a tad too much on the rough still, I had to (my perfectionalism couldn't let it go)...worked on them hair again... I tried not to over do it... Hope it is right this time.


I have try again a new technique.... no layers this time!!!
I wanted to work on my anatomy (neck area) and this picture had very detailed structure... It was also a great opportunity to work on the hair (I think I still nead practice... It would help to have a tablet....sigh)

The original can be fond here : [link]

I really like this drawing. Both colors, composition and the brush strokes are spot on :-) The hair looks very nice too...

Thanks you so much for your comment!:D

I like the colors on this one also, the skin colors are fresh and delicates. That's a point I have lost a bit in my recent projects, perhaps I should go back to my sources...;) :P

Thanks! Yeah, fine hair aren't easy to render with a mouse, I'm very happy to have my tablet now.
Though this piece ain't the one that took me the longer to render. :D

Beautiful....I was looking at your gallery, you are VERY talented...
I love the smoothness of her features !!! I've been using photoshop since 1988 ( yes, i'm an old goat) but i've never used it to make pictures like you do!!!
I notice you put one of my drawings in your favorite list (thank you).
You have a very interesting favorites gallery ( all good stuff).

Thanks you very much! I means much comming frim an artist I just discovered but already respect greatly....

LOL.... well, I'm a bit of an old timer also, I started using Photoshop at the begining of 90, along illustrator and freehand when I studied for my graphic designer diploma. But life can take weird twist and turns and I never worked in that field, so I stopped for about 15 years without really touching thoses medias...
I just started recently to draw again (CG and traditionnal). I guess it was, between other things, all those thoughts like. " hey! I can do that also... " that pushed toward art again.

Yes... my Fav gallery is very varied, I will fav either art that astound me, or when I saw great effort has been put in the making of the art... I guess it's my way of encouraging artists that are good but unseen.
My own gallery is varied too as a matter of facts, I tried lots of things but frankly, I think realism and semi-realism are my "niche"...

Thanks again for your nice comment!
P.s. forgive my english.... It's not my first language..

Wow, that's stunning. And all one layer, huh? Bold move, but it turned out well. A lot of times I'm afraid to do things all on one layer. XD I really like how the hair is done here...somewhat sketchy and yet realistic at the same time. It looks like a painting.

Very well done. Layers scare me, so I haven't tried them yet. I'm another one who likes to do what I call scannerless artwork.

But your picture here is great. :)

No layers??!! You amaze me...first you use and mouse and now no layers? How on earth do you do it???
I have to say that you have done breath-takingly well on the face and especially on the details of the neck. It looks perfect and very realistic. I always think the neck area takes a lot of skill to get just right, and you've definitely managed that. The hair looks very good, although compared to the rest of the picture, it looks a little rough. I think the individual strands of hair that you've put in look a little too rough, and IMHO it would be better to use a tablet for small details like that, but you've done well with the mouse that you have! :) All in all, a lovely piece of work :)

Ludi-Price Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, I think it looks better...I think the details of the strands look much better, although the small pale strands you've put here and there still look a tiny bit out of place, probably because it's hard to draw in a straight line with a mouse, as you say...But never mind, dear, as a whole, the picture is just amazing :D

I know ...The hair are one of the hardest part for me... I just cannot do a straight line with a damn mouse!!! Thanks god for Smudge tool!!!! I think a tablet would help me in that aspect... ah well. I might work on it again, try to fix those hair ( I wanted really badly to share this one....:) I was just itching to post it...LOL

Stunning as usual, the lighting on the front of the face is fantastic and you got the neck down really well...personally I like the effect of the rough little stray hairs that kinda stick out, gives it a nice balance...I could be wrong, but if the whole picture was to be as soft and smooth as the front of the face and neck, then it may be a little too much smoothness for our eyes to handle :eyepopping: so I think the hair approach here was a good one. The only "distraction" (for lack of a better word) that caught my attention right away was the ear...A little shadow or dark line behind the ear might help to give it the impression that the back of the ear is "seperated" from the head...still, thats pretty nit-picky, but thats what we're here for, right? :slow:

OH... wow...

You have a lovely sense of highlights and colors. The arched eyebrow looks really lovely - her expression is mellow, yet you wonder what she's thinking about. The eyeliner is beautiful... just, ... golly, you did this with mouse alone?! You're amazing, and I LOVE your style!!!

Oustanding!! :worship:

I see what you mean about the hair. There are pieces of it that are on the cusp of what you're looking to do, like the spot just above her forehead. I'm not sure what advice to give you since I can't even do that much. :D Keep up the excellent work. We learn by doing.

The beautifully detailed "sculpture" of the head and skin is pure harmony. You have a wonderful knack for skin tones. :heart:
I particularly love the lips and the arch of the eyebrow. Those areas are so easy to mess up, but you did them perfectly!! :clap: :w00t: :+fav:
