Made this for class.

Based on this photo: http://500px.com/photo/52 45487
(Photograph taken by: Elena Serebryakova)

*Update* So anyways I've been getting alot of backlash from using a referrence photo and not crediting the person. And again I apologize for not crediting the original photograph.

That said, I did not simply doctor the photo.
I attempted to recreate the original photograph through digital painting.
Here's the .psd file: http://www.newgrounds.com /dump/item/31da412edcbfe3 97366a0db30a65270d

The photograph was beautiful, and this painting is just gorgeous. I don't care if the hair doesn't look entirely realistic, I feel like that "drawn" feel to any art makes it have a certain beauty to it. Perhaps some finer details could be touched up on, but overall, this is absolutely fantastic.

Hey opposition, Tneconno, here's an idea: click on the image so it's full sized then look at the pictures side by side. The hair doesn't match up, some snowflakes aren't in the "right" spot, the eyebrows are different(it's not even a slight difference either...) and the hood is CLEARLY shaded in this picture. You can't do that with photoshop or any editing device; at least, not with that much of a contrast between the rest of her clothing.

That being said this looks phenomenal, I wish I could draw like this. Although it would be good to reference the photo it's based off of.

You should probably mention that this was a photo reference in the description, even if you don't know who TOOK the photo.

This is basically stealing, otherwise D:
Aside from that, nice job.

It's good, but it's in a weird place sorta a photo, sorta comp-inhancanced. The girl is great, give me her number sometime :) It's a good frame with the orange hair and blue eyes standing against the background. The snow in her hair is horrible though. Take a real photograph or just make something up on your computer. It's a nice try, so it's not a total failure, so it almost gets 4* BUT....
