Red Hair, Blue Eyes by jerry8448 Red Hair, Blue Eyes by jerry8448
~o~ Red Hair, Blue Eyes ~o~

I started this around lunch time and never really stopped painting until ten minutes ago. Damn you addictive tablet!
This is nobody in particular, just from the top of my head, but I did try to make it look more realistic than my usual stuff. It's also my first non-fantasy digital painting I think. I looked at a gazillion different photos to get all the shadows right, but some are still a tad off. I also changed her eye color at least ten times until I felt blue was the right choice. Would brown or green have been better?

Done with PS CS2 and Aiptek 12000u.
Full view is a must here! - Thank you :)

I uploaded a pic to my scraps to show how the eye was painted, incase your interested: [link]

I think blue and green are both great for red heads

I think this is stunning. I am currently writing a book and would like to use this picture for my front cover of my book. I can understand if you would not be happy with that, but as I do not yet understand the laws of copyright, thought I would start by asking.

Hi. Will this be a commercial release? If it's just for you, then go ahead. ;)

Wow! I'm a trifecta (red hair, green eyes, freckles) myself. I added this one to my favorites.

Okay, so as an aspiring novelist, I am already dreaing about who will play my main characters in a movie (go figure). So, for fun, I googled "red hair and blue eyes." I saw your picture and shouted out, "holy s*** that's her!" Even the expression onher face fits perfectly with her character. Just thought you should know. (Ch. 1 is on DA.)
I love the way that the light hits her hair, and her eyes havea deep brooding sense that seems to border the edge of light and dark. Her lips are the perfect shade and shape. My favorite part is the fraying at the edge of her eyebrows. Thank you so much. I have been stuck in a rut, and this is what neede to get out of it. YOU ARE THE BOMB!

This is so beautiful! I was hoping I could use this image as the profile picture for my facebook page about my first sci-fi/fantasy novel? It looks JUST how I envisioned my main character, and it would be a perfect placeholder until I make my own illustration.
Would that be okay with you?
