Im excited that I've found a way to do portraiture mixed with graphic elements. I have a feeling that it could be popular.

Will be available from Sullen Clothing in the near Future.

    Aye, its frickin Fast too. once you lay down the drawing, you can slap alot of personal stock on top and use techniques to bang out something really complex looking even though its not that labor intensive.

    i think illustrators like you and i, might suffer from investing too much time into an illustration which is difficult to recoop $$$$ on with clients cause they just dont want to pay a premium for original illustrations, but if we can find a way to take short cuts, work smarter not harder, without sacrificing too much in the way of quality or the look of complexity and time investment, we can maximize making a living with our art.

    i noticed alot of the successful industry artists tend to do this by re-use elements in all their designs. this tends to help branding as well because the art you do starts to have a specific look because of the repeated elements. etc etc.

    thanks for the words Ray. :D

    I personally don't like the roses, but i'd wear anyways.
    the black and white spaces are gorgeous

    this is awesome man..

    so was most of the time invested into the original pencil drawing of the woman's face and then you added your personal digital stock and other digital elements to it to make it unique? that is a pretty great idea.

    the keyhole on the forehead is bugging me now.

    I agree my new flippy trick is a great time saver especially in the coloring stage, the drawback is composition, but I have a feeling I just need the right assets to compliment the shortcomings of the technique. Great to see you posting again Jimiyo. Stay awesome.

    Awesome design concept, Jimiyo. Work smarter, not harder is DEFINITELY the key these days.

    I think this is great but the keyhole is distracting to my eyes. I wanna put a key in itand see what happens.
  • dzeri29

    this is awesome jim!
  • downrodeo

    Those textures are just amazing, especially around the eye area and the hair. I love how it distinguishes what from what.

    Personally I think the rose on the chin could have some gray tones added in for depth?
  • qetza

    one thing thats a bit bothering me is the rose chin. Looks like a goatee from afar. Awesome work nonetheless.
