"Judith" is my first personal piece in around 2 years of doing only commercial work. Working on this piece took me a lot of time: many hours were spent on thinking and composing it in my head, 40 hours of pure painting and a dozen hours for preparing the accompanying files.Painted in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos 4 medium. I used photo and live references for loose inspiration and stylization. No copying whatsoever. You can view them here: [link]
For those, who actually read the descriptions... See the "Making of" of this piece at my blog: [link]
PS. I doubt anyone would find it offensive due to stylization, but I am tagging the mature warning on due to nudity, just for case.
Very delightfully with sophistication
This is the reason i wanted to try digital art, so thanks a lot for sharing your work.
I hope i'll get this level one day ! ...And your "making of" help a lot.
So thank you, keep going & inspiring us
The effort shows, in a very good way, and that fine quality is in the painting. It reminds me of the best of 19th Century odalisques. She's very pretty, and you've done her full justice.
The background to the painting isn't quite clear, in a temporal sense. The furnishings give no clue, but is this a take on the Biblical story of Judith from the Apocrypha? Either way, it's VERY well done!
I can't even draw well, let alone paint, but this makes me wish that I had learned more.

I am very very impressed with what you have done.
I like that her expression is seductive and yet ambiguous; this is clearly an intelligent woman. (Perhaps I'm reading a hint of danger into her expression because of her name, as well.) Fascinating, and gorgeously rendered.
here we see .. nothing but a paintover pretending to be a painting ..the video omits the photo layer when recording..
honesty is the best policy..deviant art has a lot of this deception.. painter/photographer..
Love the set-up, colors and fabric and such a sexy & sensual model... Love it!
First thing that popped into my mind was a scene in the book Imajica where a character named Judith layed down on a bed described just like this one.
can be seen and admired for a very long time, without taking off your eyes from it...
beautiful colors theme, the pose , the designs and material of bed sheets , its all amazing....
