Gwen portrait by DrewGardner Gwen portrait by DrewGardner
The plan with this image was to draw her face on a large scale, and render it as realisticaly as possible while retaining the cartoon look.

Great work! The freckles are a nice touch but they seem to be patterned. Kinda of drew me out of my fantasyland. You have outstanding work that I hope to aspire to. This is not a cut on you, just constructive feedback.

Perhaps sometime, you could do An Omniverse Gwen pic. I'm starting to get used to her new attire;) (Wink) , but I still despise her redesigned Anodite form.:( (Sad)

After looking at the blow-up the detail is just amazing!
chrome gleam on the hairclip
two-tone eye highlights
rib waves in the neckline
texture weave in the fabric
- and the freckles - whew!!

Glad someone looked at the full-view! This pic is designed to be closely scrutinised.
 I tried rendering Elastigirl- and found she went from a cute 2d drawing to a creepy weird-looking rendered image..  was quite a cool drawing though -have to try recolouring it someday.
 That's why I was careful to keep the facial shading at a point where it gives the face form, but doesn't make her grotesque.
I remember on the behind the scenes of "Incredibles", the guy sculpting Violet was having a lot of trouble making her look pretty..

Takes an artist's eye (6_6)  I know what you mean when you render a 3-D.
Look at Elastigirl on screen - cute! Elastigirl as a Happy Meal toy - butt ugly!

A great synergy between stylized and realistic, fantastic job! The attention to the cloth fibers and strands of hair are particularly impressive. :o

DrewGardner Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2013   Digital Artist
Thanks! I rushed the hair a bit, but I'm happy with the fabric - I used the "Texturiser" tool, and the "Artistic-Smudge" filter to give it that cloth-look.

Well, I wasn't going for full-realistic.. That would cross the line and look too creepy, I think.
 There's other bits like her hair, that I left looking somewhat cartoony..

Hmm, she is a bit too glossy for my tastes but does indeed look more realistic. Maybe its the white spots in her eyes that are giving me that glossy impression. Lips are great tho.

Awwww - she looks adorable here! A sweet little smile, some great lighting touches in her hair, shirt, cheeks and chin really giving her shape and form... a really cute shot of her, and sometimes a nice, close crop is a great way to keep things focused and fun. Very cute pic! :)

Thanks Broseph! ;)
 Part of why I am so fond of Gwen is her innocence, so I just wanted to do a pure vanilla pic of her in her element.
  I tried to keep it subtle, I was wary of making her expression too goofy by over-rendering it.
 There's multiple light sources too - the strong sunlight from the side, and the faint blue glow from the sky.. And her ears are blushing a bit too!
 I have moved away from textures a bit after a brief experimentation earlier in the year, but they seemed fitting for this image, so I used a mix of "Texturiser" and "Artistic-Sponge" filters on her top to make it look like real fabric, and rendering freckles is always fun!

I think the different techniques and elements you used here really blend and work together well. It's worth testing some of of those processes from time to time to see what you like, what you don't and from there, figure out how you might tweak your approach into something you'll like even more. She's a very worthy test subject and you really worked out an adorable snapshot for her.

It's the little touches around her expression that really make it all work as cutely as it does - well done and a very fun change of pace here!
