Radeo-024
So, my suicide girls project continues, this time with Radeo (oh, sweet Radeo *w* haha). Tried a different color scheme this time, although I kept the concept I used in the two previous girls (AnnaLee and Katherine). I plan on continuing this "full close up-chicks in armor" project, although I will probably take a little break for the moment.
Please :+fav: and comment! :D

Adobe Illustrator CS5, just pen, pencil, brush and blending modes. No gradients or mesh at all (and proud of it O_o!)

EDIT: Updated the eyes and the lips a little bit, as well as some detail on the shoulder armor.

Thanks for indicating the tools you used. I find that educational. You have an interesting technique for building up shadows and highlights. I really like the subtle highlight behind her glasses below her left eye. And, of course, the shoulder is lovely to look at (obviously you spent the most time painting that and her face)

Thank you, I like to indicate them, and as well, have a different shading technique cause' of the "rise" in mesh portraits, I don't like them, it's like taking a photocopy of a pic, I mean they have their merit but in the end is a personal choice of disliking them haha. It took me quite a while to adapt and perfect this technique and I still believe there's room for improvement haha, and yeah, I spent quite a lot on her face and the shoulder indeed :XD:

Oh, totally. Though I don't dislike them, I don't get it either. The other day I saw one that was completely indistinguishable from a photograph. So it seemed like you could get the same results in an hour or two of PhotoShop rather than hours and hours in Illustrator. To each their own!

Yeah that's exactly what I think!!! I mean, it's like the difference between a litograph and an oil painting, one is a near-photocopy print of a picture, while the other is something where you can see in a way the effort of an artist, I try to achieve that by not making my vectors hyper-realistic :)

oh and thanks for the :+devwatch: :)
