Kate Austen Portrait by mauricioestrella Kate Austen Portrait by mauricioestrella
Yay I finished it! :#1:

I took my afternoon off and I needed something freshy to work on... so what could be better than waiting for 9 months before final season of LOST? Yez! :P Drawing one of my fav characters. Kate Austen.

I found a cool reference pic and I tried to recreate it on Painter. Considering it took me several hours, I think it's pretty decent so far. I know it needs A LOT more of work. I might find some spare time in this week to finish it.

The rusty and dirty look on the skin was easy thanks to the Artist Oils tool and a weird effect it produces on ocre tones, since it tends to burn a bit the color when using blended bristles or knives. (boring tech talk lol)

I hope you like the outcome. :thanks:

Kate Austen is a character of LOST played by Evangeline Lilly. LOST/Kate/Etc is ©ABC/Disney.

Kate Austen is her character in Lost. Evangeline Lilly is the actress, of course. I painted her in 'character' since there's basically zero makeup, sunburn and windy hair on the ocean sky. Ha.

Me, too. And to think I first draw the shape of the head and lines indicating where the eyes, nose and mouth would be and then I start sketching and correcting but because the mouth are to high or to low this guy just wow! He is amazing! Hopefully some day I'll master the skill myself.

:wave: Hola

Thanks for the comment! And well, drawing with a tablet is always complicated at the beginning. It takes a while to get used to stroke over a black surface and see it on a screen at the same time.

When your eyes can't see the physical lines that the pen is doing, it creates a -FUCKED UP- feeling lol :lol:

I'm sure you can work out a way for it though. It took me a while to get used to. :)

This is what I love about Digital art, she is so gorgeous but you enhanced her features and made a beautiful portrait of her. Makes me want to use Painter more often. good work.

:ohnoes: I've looked at all your comments (in this deviation), but I have yet to find out what version of Corel Painter you have. It's so good, and I must learn how to do that!

Thank you for the runthrough. : D
