Glee fan art : Kurt Hummel by mking2008 Glee fan art : Kurt Hummel by mking2008
Finally had some time to sit and paint. Started a bunch of things and scrapped them because they weren't quite coming together.

This was painted freehand while looking at a reference photo. No gridlines this time, so the likeness isn't as quite spot on as I'd like. But I think I captured the spirit of Kurt a little bit.

absolutely amazing.
I cannot paint on the computer at all.
This has got to be one of my favorite digital paintings I've seen.

Wow.... that's amazing. It looks just like the photo. I envy people who can freehand realism. Mine always turns out skewed in some way.... I must work on it in hopes that I can do something like this some day. :aww:

Thanks for the kind words. I'm still not as good as I'd like to be, and that's after at least 5 years of deliberate practice. You'll get there eventually if keep at it.

This took about 3 hours to do using Photoshop and an ancient Wacom tablet.

I'm using some custom brushes from *zhuzhu. He has a good tutorial here: :thumb53902642: [link]

And I've done one for another painting of mine here:

I think I ended up spending most of the time trying to get the face right.

Thanks! I'm trying to practice doing more things freehand. This is one of the successes. But I've got 10 failed attempts at different paintings before this one.
