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.:D

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 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.

:bulletyellow: Adobe Photoshop CS5
:bulletyellow: tablet Genius G-pen M609X
:bulletyellow: original size is 7000 x 7000 px
:bulletyellow: I had 22 layers
:bulletyellow: 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.
What do you think?

This's very beautiful id pic. You really know how to capture person to your drawings.

Can I ask where name tincek-marincek comes from?

tincek-marincek Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thanks a lot...:love: comes from our names. Tincek is for me, Valentina...shorter Tina or Tinček...and Marincek is for my sister Marina, shorter Marinček :la: :dummy: We share this account. :D

Okay. That's nice nickname you and your sister have. Can I ask you do you've any tips how to draw realistic humans?

This is beautiful!:D

Actually, I have an idea of how you two can fit in the same image... since you are so close together that you're like an extension of each other but so different at the same time. (I hope you forgive me for editing your art so badly T_T but I was too lazy to draw it myself so I just edited it for the concept)

Hahaha...aww, thanks. :love: :squee: You actually won't believe it, but the original concept was exactly like that :D 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 ;P

That's kinda scary.:lol:

I hope she does!:D it'll be awesome. If she doesn't, tell her her name is slapped in the username and description already so she needs to appear on the ID.:paranoid:
tincek-marincek Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Professional General Artist is :rofl: :nod: Hmmm, I'll have to find my old PSD so you'll see it for yourself ;P Haha, lol :giggle: Yea...everyone always ask me where is Marina. She needs to appear somewhere ;P
