Pisces by Pencil-Stencil Pisces by Pencil-Stencil

A painting for my most beloved lady, who is celebrating a special day today :dummy: Happy Birthday Inna-Vjuzhanina :iconyesyoucanplz:
My Pisces soulmate! :lmao: :cake::dance::party::music:

This was supposed to go in another direction but I couldn't make up my mind and made several versions, and the aquatic one took over so i finished it accordingly,
and it's kind of appropriate considering it's her Bday and she's a Pisces (and so am I :mwahaha: ).
Hope you like :blowkiss:

Reference picture - Lana Del Rey.

It's amazing! The lights on her face and the skin complexion make her look very aquatic. Well done!

This is truly a nice artwork! I love it! It looks like there is too much sun,because of the huge light  on her skin. btw: I love the shade what her hand made on her face, how you done it! The whole pic looks so stunning.
But somehow I cannot believe that those hands are hers. I dont know why.

Actually I agree with you about the hands! :D I used a reference of Lana Del Rey and while rendering the hands somehow they felt weird, too big with freakish fingers. But since it was a realistic rendition referenced from a photo, all is correct I'm afraid :lmao: Lana just has wonky hands.

Thanks for the compliment and critique! :D

 Phew!  I am happy that you dont have problem with critique!w00t! I was a bit afraid of what will you think about it. Cool! :)
I see, okay then :D She has a huge hands, thats it. Though I think you dont really need to always stick to a reference pic, because some natural things (forms, pose etc.) somehow didnt look good when you draw it. But of course its just my oppinion.
Anyway: you made super art here! :)

Thank you! :) Well, when I get a bit more comfortable with original work, I will use references only as guidance - but in this case I needed to follow the reference exactly because it was my intention to actually give my friend a painting of Lana :D So I had to find a photo of Lana and not change it (only later she turned into this Pisces creature, it was an accident :lmao: ).

Of course! I didnt want to tell you how to use a ref pic, just my english knowledge limit the things I can tell in it. xD
Yeah, of course you are totally right! ^^ :D

This is stunning! I love the two styles of the hair and face rendering. Really brings the piece together. Great work!

Wow, what a painting! I think what makes it so strong, other than the good rendering, is the dynamic shadows on the face, and also the choice to leave the hair un-rendered.

This is unbelievably beautiful!  I love how she's so life-like, and then her hair completely changes the feel of the whole piece!  Such a clever thing you did with her hair!  The shadows!  Her face!  Those eyes!  Wow!  Just....  wow!

This is wonderful :) But are you planning to add also the version before ending? The one I saw in a gif :) :D
I think both are lovely and I'd like to watch closely also the other one :)
I still can't believe how you made this skin :heart: (yeah, my zero knowledge about digital art :D )
The idea to make hair the way you did is brilliant :) It makes the picture looking lighter and it seems almost impossible to catch it - but you did :)
