I present to you the beautiful and talented Emma Stone, in the form of digital painting and typography.
Think I set some record with this project.
~15 hours work time (estimate)[I'm lazy and never spend long on projects]
~1.00GB .PSD File
Still working on my style with these projects. Couldn't quite get a number of spots perfect. (Zoom out and it looks terribly derpy). Pretty happy with the final product though, and I mean if I had nailed every bit of it what fun would doing any more of these be, if I had nothing to try to make better.
Hope to do a few more of these by the end of the summer. I've decided these are my favorite types of projects. No other project can I just sit down and get lost in for 4+hours at a time. As much as I like to see the final product, finishing these is also a little disappointing. Its like the end of an amazing movie, and you just want it to keep going.
Going to write a journal regarding my hopes for these projects. Keep an eye out for it.
(Also, ref: [link]
nowhere in the psd is there a layer that is visible and has any portion of this image on any opacity. Everything that is shown in the final image was completely created by me. Reference was primarily used for boxing where the number of strands had to go.)
