I drew Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons from Agents of Shield. I gave her a signed print when I met her at the 2016 LA Comic Book and Sci Fi Convention in August. She was so suprised and happy to get the print! I was so honored and excited to present it to her! When I asked her to sign a copy for me, she felt like she could mess it up, but I told her that’s impossible.
I started this digital painting on 6-24-16 using Krita. I used side-by-side comparison while drawing and I would switch back and forth between the reference photo and my painting to see precisely how close my drawing was coming out to the photograph. I didn’t trace the original photo or draw over it. This digital painting is better than any previous artwork that I’ve made, and it’s the first time I reached photo-realism.
