minnesota by livelyarsenic minnesota by livelyarsenic
Home of the cold, land of frost.

...except today :P

took time out from painting to do a more detailed portrait..
I realize why I stay away from doing light hair portraits--it is easier than doing dude scruff tho'

thanks for takin' a look.

//EDIT:
Yes, it is Gwyneth Paltrow. Sorry, it is one of the first things in my keyword tags---forgot that the tags don't show on the post.

minnesota by ~livelyarsenic has a grace and beauty about it that makes me want to look at it for hours. Love the lines and colour palette used. ( Featured by DomiSM )

Can you do a tutorial or maybe step by step of this?
I love the effect of the hair but I can't seem to reproduce it...

Thanks, I don't really have the time to put a visual together on the how-to but I can tell you it's layers (upon layers) of low opacity (transparent) white and dark blue "strands" built up. For a bit more depth I also did some gradient mesh work where the darker tones are and set it in the opacity menu as 'darken' and adjusted the opacity down (10-15% range). Hope that helps a bit or at least gives you an idea

Even though the weather is warming up, it doesn't change the fact that this is a beautiful vector! I love how fresh the colors look. =]
