Bono - Digital Series by artcova Bono - Digital Series by artcova
Not "Even better than the real thing" at all... but came out damn nice. :D
I'm proud of this.

Digital Painting in Photoshop, around 5 hours of work with only one custom brush, which I love. :giggle:

Comments and critiques are always welcomed, and if you like it, let me know.

you're right, it's damn nice! :) Which brush did you use if I may ask? And 5 hours...are you serious?

It's a custom one, with a gritty, dirty texture that's just great :D
And yeah, 5 hours.. but I'm getting faster :P

It seems to work well. I need to work on texture... 5 hours is fast in my opinion!but i haven't really done any digital ones from good ref pictures.

stunning!
but i think it's not worth making it exactly like a real photo since human invented camera. i prefer to retain some stylish brush strokes to indicate it is not a photo.

:iconartcova:
artcova Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
My intention is not to make it look like a photo, but the more time I spend on it, the more I get that look. Maybe I'm too obsessive, but I keep fixing things and things and when I'm happy with how it looks.. well, you get that.

Another reason can be the size of the canvas I worked on. This was one of my bigger works, so when you zoom out like this, you can't see the strokes easily.

I appreciate your comment, mate. Thank you :)
