Kate in Sunshine by Blacleria Kate in Sunshine by Blacleria
Suprise Suprise!
I wasn't satisfied with my old Kate Beckingsale Portrait for =JurgenDoe's contest anymore, so I decided to make a new one and yeah, this is the result!
If you want so see my other entry, look here: [link]

I think I have quite a lot improved if you compare it with the "old" one :)


i am quite satisfied with the skin and the eyes and so, butI had my problems with the hair, really annoying, but I tried my best :aww:
Don't tell me the skin looks dirty, it was trying to make it not too smooth because I really don't like this >.<
Critics are always appreciated, especially because this is only my second digital Portrait I have done in my live, but don't be too harsh, really put a lot of effort in this painting^.^

Thank you. The most beautiful actress I have ever seen is Meryl Streep, though I think Kate Beckingsale is also quite beautiful ;)

Her skin doesn't look dirty at all, and her hair looks so amazing.
Kate is so beautiful and you did her perfect justice. Well done.

Thank you very much! Well, I think "dirty" is not the correct word... it is more like irregular blotches on her skin which just looks...strange XD

I do have to tell you, its you are being modest.
I do portraits too, but the amount of realism you have achieved, as well as the lighting
proportions,believe me its remarkable. And I was blown away when i read that its just a second digital painting/portrait you have done. Its just freaking awesome how you got the freckles on her face and the little less softer lips. Its a very detailed work and you definitely deserve a DD on it.
I am still observing the details.

If you have any suggestions for me, please do share with me. I will really appreciate it.
