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.
