About Project

I did this on my first few days in Smart Communications Inc. office. I was bored and wanted to do something while waiting for my boss and I decided to paint Jennifer Connelly using just my work laptop and mouse.

Tools / Discipline

  • Photoshop
  • Computer Mouse
  • Digital Painting
  • People
  • Portrait

I searched in Google for Jennifer's photo but I only got a low-res version. Low-res is fine since my only objective is to exercise my eyes to copy the reference pic (left).

Since I don't have my Wacom pen that time, I challenged myself to work on my computer's mouse only. So I started with basic shades and shapes. My painting looks funny.

I added more levels in this part and made corrections on her eyebrows using the liquify tool.

Since I can't waste my whole day in the office painting, I decided to use Photoshop's pen tool for the hair. I slightly adjusted her jaw as well.

I'm almost done here and just doing all the post prod works.
