kateBeckinsale by cd-marcus kateBeckinsale by cd-marcus

this was started to participate in a contest hosted by =JurgenDoe, but i missed the deadline... oh well! :shrug:

so i decided to go ahead, once the reference was a bit challenging and i really wanted to do a straight celebrity portrait, which i haven't done for ages (well, i guess i haven't done nothing for ages, hehe)

anyway, here is Kate Beckinsale, in a black and white vector.

i was really tempted to play with variations to add a slight coloring after have exported the vector to .png, but this way it would turn it into a vexel?, so i decided to keep my original intention.

hope you like it.

*edit: corrected a little mistake in the iris + added watermark =/

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-30
kateBeckinsale by =cd-marcus ( Suggested by SandyLynx and Featured by Ikue )
When I first saw this in the DD section, I thought it looked great. But it was when I FullViewed it when my jaw-dropped.

The attention to detail here is impeccable. The first thing I looked at was the gorgeous looking eye. I seriously looked at it for a good minute or two to look at all the incredible details.

The hair is also beautiful! It looks so natural.

I seriously can not find a single thing to complain about in this picture. Everything looks so perfect, the lips, the nails the wonderful lighting. It looks amazing in black & white as well, it was a good choice in not making this color in my opinion.

Congratulations on the Daily Deviation! This is truly one of the most deserving pieces I have seen here that holds this price.

I'm not going to talk about the picture, because you know i'm going to say it's perfect... damn i just did. :giggle:
But i would just love to say that it's great how you use Corel and showing that it's equal to Illustrator in so many ways.

The image is AWESOME, without WORDS, but watermark + image + my desktop = awful!

Isn`t a way for us to have the wallpaper without watermark? :sadangel:

Would it be possible to have an un-watermarked version to use a desktop background? At least, no watermark in the center.

Really good picture! :) Originally thought it was a drawing of the same image. Really good though; like the variations in the shades used.
Phoenix-Dream-Angel Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I love the original picture I do not like this vector. I'm learning vector right now and if this is as good as it ever gets I think its a waste of time.

I know you tried, and you're a hundred times better than I am with vector. But I still don't like it......sorry

Everyone says its beautiful and I guess if this is as good as vector gets kudos but ugh......sorry

Looks like shit. Most of these Daily Deviations absolutely suck.
