This is beautiful! I've never done any digital painting, just traditional. If I was to start though could you recommend a good tablet to use?
How long did it take you to reach this level of expertise? Did you start as a traditional artist and move to digital, or did you dive right into digital art?
Thanks!

Thank you for your comment!
I started in traditional painting (I always do!)
I went there a little over a year at digital painting (active!)

For the tablet, I opted for a Wacom Bamboo pen & touch size Medium.

Happy new year!

I love the colors you used on the skin and mouth. And the way you made the eyes, they're have so much life and expression, I'm fascinated with the eyes.

I just think the hair need a little more detail, but it's beautiful.

I like the way she looks. It is all very expressive... I mean, it seems like she wants to kill you with just one look. I like it (and I am sorry for my english, it is very hard to express myself :<)

Love the colour palette and the way you painted the eyes. Are you writing the story yourself, or is this a commission? Just curious. I am writing the outline of a Sci-fi story myself (a novel) and plan to turn it into an audiobook and possibly a graphic novel, all done by me.
