I try to draw myself...this is me (Valentina), kinda. I didn't have reference photo or mirror, I just try to draw myself how I think that I look. I didn't draw my sister Marina, because I didn't know where would I put her...we are twins, but we don't look the same at all.
A little about us...we are twins Valentina & Marina Remenar and we are 17 years old. We are Croatian but we live in Slovenia for whole life. We love to draw...digital and traditional (mostly realistic). We go to graphic design high school (srednja šola za oblikovanje in fotografijo, Ljubljana). And that's all... and I'm always on dA (Valentina) and I talk with you.
Adobe Photoshop CS5 tablet Genius G-pen M609X original size is 7000 x 7000 px I had 22 layers I draw this 7 hours
I hope you like drawing...and comments are welcome.
One of the most original and representative selfportraits i saw.This drawing bring originality in tehnique and the airy background from an modern style comes perfect with the rennaisance realism portrait. One of the parts wich impress me was the tehnique used:An realistic character balanced with the hair and clothing with contemporary design. I can say i've remained just impressed for the quality and hard work wich has been made.What i also like is the simplicity wich has been made.Many artists try to make their portraits looking special by complicate them and adding messages wich we can't understand many times but this one can be understanded by any spectator.In fact,you want to show who you are not what you are.
Hahaha...aww, thanks. You actually won't believe it, but the original concept was exactly like that I drew even Marina in the same position as you edited...but then I disabled layer cuz I totally failed...haha. Though I'll have to make an new ID soon (this one was so old), so I'll try to draw Marina also. If she'll let me
