The look on her face makes it look like such a cheeky grin.

While I am used to seeing Wonder Woman with slightly more angular features, I must say that this particular piece is stunning, with the slightly softer look improving it dramatically.

The dazzling smile, the radiant coloring, they add up to the most wonderful Wonder Woman close up I have ever seen!

Congratulations on fantastic work.

THANK YOU.

Thank you for giving Wonder Woman a smile. I think that's how she must be portrayed most of the time.

I love your art. You're INSPIRATION.

As always, wonderful. The smile in particular is just beautiful. The eyes, though...usually you give Wonder Woman more John Buscema-ish eyes, and here they look more Hildebrandt-y.Not sure I like it as much as usual, but still, you do a darned gorgeous Diana!

AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
The problem with those J. Buscema eyes is that when you try to draw them on a smiling face, they look Asian.

did you use a dissolve brush or layer in there on her hair? is that to make the light more incandescent and kinda glittery?

love the hard light on her face and tiara. you're clever

:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
I used the Gradient Tool set to Dissolve, yup.

I did it because I need to show gradation in her hair, but because her darkest hair was butting up against the edge of the printable ink thresholds for this piece, a Normal Mode Gradient Tool gradation created some wierd colors in the transition. I've found that using Dissolve helps alleviate the problem a little.

wow, interesting, so when you print it wouldn't look kinda pixellated like that?
Reply
:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2010
No. This piece was done at 500 dpi. That Dissolve texture has a stocastic 'mezzotint' quality when printed.

(looks up stochastic)

wow. I'd like to see the printed version to see how that looks. That's interesting, I always wondered why dissolve was in there, I kind of thought it was to do some pixelated art or something. I've never used it as a result, if it stops those weird colour bands with gradients when printing, seems pretty useful. Thanks!

So when it goes to print, it prints at 500 dpi? Sorry, last question, I promise!

wow, i just find it so bizarre how photorealistic your work is. it's like you ref off of a photo each time. but i assume that you don't based on the consistency in all of your work and your rough sketches.

for every single piece?
Reply
:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2010
No. I only use it when I think I can improve some aspect of a piece. On some peices I mights use no reference, on others I might use reference on an elbow or an eye, on others I may use a lot. It all depends on the situation and the assignment.

loish Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2010
ah ok. what i meant was that all of your artwork has so much consistency and realism that it looks like you ref the entire thing - the proportions and lighting are always so real. but it's just your extreme talent! plus occasional use of references, as i have just learned. :]

The cool thing about seeing images up close is you can really see more in the expression than you might with a far away, full body shot...

There is a lot of joy and excitement in her face. I really appreciate that you know the character and it translates so clearly in your work!

How do you go about making glow effects with the pencil tool? Is it a custom made brush of yours, or does Photoshop have this as a custom brush...? Great work like always, btw! ;)
Reply
:iconadamhughes:
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2010
The glow effects, if I understand what you're asking about, are made using feathered Lasso selections, and then filling with the Mode set to Lighten, Screen, or Linear Dodge (or combinations).

:iconjoelpoischen:
JoelPoischen Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Ah, so that's how your glow effects are done! I'll have to try out your coloring technique sometime! I'm a fan of the pencil tool, too (you don't end up with a million tiny pixels flying all over the place, like with the airbrush!). Keep it up!

I like how your using grain.

It's so strange to see them up close like this, in a way they look abstract, but when you look at the full image it all makes sense :3
