Inner demons by ChaosAcathla Inner demons by ChaosAcathla
Edit Made some serious facial alterations that have been bugging me!

I think Castiel is having a rough time with those Leviathans!

My first piece done using my new CS6 and iMac. Since it was such a steep learning curve this piece took me longer than normal and I didn't take any WIP screen shots (I actually don't know how to on a Mac yet), so apologies but I wont be compiling any WIPS for this one.

I really enjoyed the process though, having a bigger screen (I was previously working on 17") makes it so much more enjoyable!

This is my Halloween piece any way, I hope you like it, comments are always appreciated and questions are welcomed!

Time approx: 10hrs

Wow, this one is really pretty. The colors look good and you got the emotion spot on. The wistful look in Cas' eye as he looks back is captured really well. I really like the sort of brushed metal look the picture has but the highlights are not really working (around the eyes mainly). This probably is too harsh and I repeat this work is amazing and I love it but the skin looks like plastic. It's too shiny and reflective. Skin generally doesn't look like that so if you are trying realism, you should probably work on that a little. (You got it right in the Cas's Moody Face speedpaint!) Other than the smoothness (try some textures maybe?) this piece is amazing and you are incredibly talented and I am a bitch for finding fault in this but I always like it if someone points out my flaws (it's soooo hard to get quality critique on fanart because people tend to focus the CHARACTER rather than the art) so I though I might as well say this. This is really good but there's room to improve and I hope to see more incredible art coming from you. :)

I'm glad you like it, I try to get as much detail in as possible but at the same time I envy artists that can create an equally realistic and interesting portrait with very little fine detail. But there's always something to aspire to eh!? Thank you for your comment! ^^
