That is some absolutely gorgeous artwork. McCoy is your most flawless one out of the lot, but I must saw that Kirk's is my favourite. <3 If not for his eyes because they mesmerize me The sheer amount of detail seriously blows my brain to Neverland, though. It's just...asdjaklsjdk ♥ I'm so jealous. <3

What program do you use, by chance? :3

Also, you're patience with the detail on Bones and Spock's shirt is astounding too. <3

*blushes* Thank you so very, very much... I'm in love with Kirk's eyes to so I totally know how you feel. :D

I use Photoshop but you can use just about any decent editing program (Paint Shop Pro or Gimp will do). I have to say though that the magic tool here is my digital drawing tablet. I know people who can do this with a mouse but I think I would pull all the hair off my head before I could a portrait by strictly using a mouse.

As for the shirt, yeah... I'm not sure I'm going to do this again because it's kind of mind-numbing. Maybe I'll just do them naked next time. Hee! :D

Totally you're welcome! :D even watching the movie I was drooling over his darn eyes GUH

Photoshop, should have figured. XD You've got wonderful control with your brushes. D: Whenever I try to manipulate my brushes to paint something they always go wonky on me. >_> Course, my computer's so old that it bitches at me every time I try to use photoshop... D: I got my own wonderful tablet too, one of the older Graphire 4s, but I tend to stick to SAI Painter. :3 (a less-known program but that has GORGEOUS tools and it doesn't destroy my computer and my patience with loading times. XD)

Holy crap so you DID do them by hand! XDD Jesus, here I was thinking you'd cheated with a brush or something! That's just plain suicide! XD

Holy crap, how is that even possible? These are brilliant. You're attention to detail is amazing.

Damn. At first, I didn't get it because I was like "It's the pictures?" And then I clicked them to look at them normal size and promptly showed two different people I'm talking to. THESE ARE AMAZING. I am blown away by how amazing you are at this. They are just flawless.

Thank you so very much! Actually, I've seen digital paintings that are even more photorealistic than this, believe it or not. Personally, I'd rather leave the brushstrokes there and not make everything "too perfect" because I don't want people to wonder if it's a photo even after they've looked at the paintings in their normal size. It's happened to me a number of times and I find that annoying. :D

Lady Vaako: Kirk - smartasslady__vaako on June 15th, 2009 02:14 am (UTC)
Thanks! Next time I think I'll post the photo(s) I've used as reference so people can see the difference. :)

Reading all the other comments I'm still a little confused, are these photos?

Oh God, these are absolutely mesmerizing! Particularly Jim! <3
Lady Vaako: Kirk - smartasslady__vaako on June 15th, 2009 02:15 am (UTC)
Awww... Thank you so, so much! I think Jim is my own favourite as well. I tried to make his eye pop, the way they always should 'cause they're just so beautiful... <3
