Thank you very much, Stacy, I appreciate your feedback a lot!
Now that I look at it, I don’t like the frosting on her breasts. I should probably work on it some more.
I posted a relatively low-res file because I wasn’t sure it was ok to post original (10K px). Ebas doesn’t have this file in his profile. But Sean gave it a go, so I will upload the high-res (with improved frosting ).
As for the Illustrator and pen tool, it’s just a matter of practice. I worked for a long time on portraits and made over 600 of them, the bigger chunk of them in vector. So I guess I am just comfortable with the software. But inking is quite another matter, I am still new in this area, and each piece presents new puzzles for me.
I guess I should express my gratitude to Sean Ellery for posting pencils available for inking in his journal. I am still new on deviant, so his posts made it possible for me to work on professional inspiring pencils.
Thank you once again. I hope you will continue working in vector and perfecting you skills. I am looking forward to seeing great vector inking from you! Cheers!
