Fantastic work. Very great work on turning the stock photo and transforming it into something beautiful. I really love how you did the hair and incorporated the dress into this.

You paint this with SAI??!!?

Simply amazing. I'm inspired to do one of these in future - not until I master human anatomy first and basic traditional painting skills!

I find it amusing that you're opposing to a trend of the global market, where if you are not able to draw digitally you'd worth less than zero.
Maybe you should put aside the hatred for this medium and start to practice it more.

No thank, I like the originial and I never said I hated it, genius. Clearly you cna't be one if you made that sorry staement. Your first sentence just shows that you and everyone else are all the same. Just because it's a trend, doesn't mean you have to copy everyone else. I don't do things because it's "in tyle" I do it because I like to do it. lol Fail.
Now I insulted you because you clearly lied and made false assucations about me, your problem now.
I draw digitally, sometimes on ms paint.

Why are you starting insulting me? Are you 12 years old or something?
Please, you should understand how to talk to others politely first and then maybe start talking.
If you're expecting the world to agree with your opinion you're just acting like a child. Shouting out your opinion expecting people to agree with you is just silly.
Obviously you just wanted to create drama or something because if not, you would tried to understand my point of view at least.

I lied about what exaclty? Bah, this discussion is pointless
.
It's not in tyle, anyway. The global market ask for professionality and sometimes digital art is what the market is searching. It's a fact, not a trend.
Keep on this way, without updating, and you will see that the market will slam its doors right in your face.
You have to be versatile and less stubborn if you want to earn your bread.

Back to basics?
I'm afraid you're making the assumption that "back to basics" means making it up as you go along...
Correct me if I'm mistaken :3

One of the best ways to learn how to draw is drawing from real life; this does involve drawing using references. That's why typically at almost every art school you go to they start the year off with life drawing classes. The best way to learn anatomy is to practice drawing real people.

I'm afraid you are using assumptions as an excuse to get off what I was really saying. So I corrected you.
I amnot talking abotu drawing references so shut up with that. You basically just repeated what I was saying.

:iconsystemerrorkaye:
SystemErrorKaye Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Then please explain to me what exactly it was that you were really saying as you haven't really explained it that well...

I'm confused...
We are talking about drawing from reference. You're the one that brought it up and are seemingly complaining about it.
