Hi there, I'm a young artist who loves the digital world. For a long time, I have been developing several techniques for computer drawings and today I want to share my art with you.
With The Portrait Making I intend to create artworks to add to my portfolio and help me to open an artistic path for my career.
Why portraits? Well, because portraits are the best way to reflect the personality, essence and identity of someone through painting.
Why digital? This question has been asked by all my friends and family, I want to make everyone understand that, although art is wonderful in physical, digital art is also wonderful and has the same value as an artwork in physical.
What's good about digital art? Many things, in the case of portraits, it is true that it is not the same to have a painting on canvas to a digital impression (but you can actually print on canvas), however, the fact of being able to use the exact colors you want, the tools and brushes you need, to be able to create a canvas of the size you like, of making all the copies you want and always be able to have a spare file in case something happens to the painting (just having to print it again to replace it), are some of the qualities that make digital drawing superior against the traditional one. However, all of the above does not mean that digital art becomes cold, soulless and ceases to be unique, it is simply another way of expressing it.
How does it work? Since I do not know you and it is almost impossible for you to live near me to go and paint you, you send me a photograph posing as you would like me to do the portrait with the highest possible quality and you will receive your painting (times bigger) true to the photo you sent to keep the essence of you. And if you ar wondering, is not paint over photo or digital manipulation of the image, is a technique faithful to the details by layers, practically in the same way that physical paintings are made. In fact, I took the liberty to download/buy software and make several automatic paintings (even with artificial intelligence) so you can compare them with my work, you'll appreciate the difference between a machine and human dedication for the love of art.
The perfect gift for you and others.
Now, if you want to know how to pose, that depends completely on you, do something that reflects who you are and wear the clothes that you like, I recommend this framing, but you can choose to do it however you want, use your imagination.
I do not have an exact size or a completely confirmed aspect ratio for the final product, however, I will make it of the best possible quality and try to maintain an aspect ratio of 4:5 (for its usefulness), although you can specify how would you print the portrait or what would you use it for, so I could adapt it to your needs. I also want to clarify that there will not be physical shipments of portraits, mainly because in many countries the shipping is as expensive as the printing of the portrait itself, so I opted for everyone to print it where you consider and save these costs and time.
As a final point I want to clarify one thing, style 1 is done by software, BUT, the difference is that I developed it, only for that reason is it in the list of my styles.
