- Soyala - by Anathematixs - Soyala - by Anathematixs
And I find myself submitting another speedpaint.
Inspired by the current snowfall. :)
The name "Soyala" means "time of the winter solstice" in the language of the Hopi tribe.

My latest commissions have proven to be quite challenging, so doing these portrait speedpaints are very relaxing.
I'll be doing more "regular" painting soon, I think.
Though odds are I will be doing more of these

She's beautiful in a very serene and majestic way. I was thinking she was Royalty of some sort. I love the snow affects, too.

Tell me please, how do you make the skin look so soft. What brushes you use? In what combination. I do very nice drawing in pencil.. but now, on a tablet i just don't know what to do. Is very important for me. If u can explain here a little bit detailed

I really only use default Photoshop brushes. Mostly just one, actually.
The "soft round brush" with Opacity and Flow set to "pen pressure".
I am writing a few exclusive tutorials for a website and one of the subjects will be how I paint skin. So if you want a detailed tutorial, keep your eye on the page at this [link]
The menu is to the right and the first one "Sara 2" is now up! :D

Quite a few people have said it and I didn't see it at first, but then I looked again and... yeah.. there is definitely a resemblance. Whoops xD

Well, I think it's a good think you are able to include such specific facial features in your art- it shows great technique! :aww:

You, my dear, have nothing to be jealous of!
Nowadays, a speedpaint to me takes 2-4 hours. When I started, I considered anything that took me less than 10 hours a speedpaint!
I can see you have the talent to go very far. The rest of it is experience.

Aaaaaaaaand now I sound like an old fart :P lol

Thank you! Sometimes I need a lil pep talk after looking at everyones beautiful art on here. Some days it drives me to be better. Others, I'm ready to give up lol. I can't wait till the day I can do a gorgeous speedpaint like that in under 3 hours. Right now I consider something I do in one a day a speedpaint. But ya, that could be all day of painting. And btw your not that much older than me, which is why I am a little envious ;). Anyways, keep up the beautiful work!
