Natalie Portman's portrait.
This kind of things,"realistic",for me is easy and there is not all the thinking process,creative process that is much more stressful.When you work without references is more difficult.You have to think about lines,shapes,shadows,perspective,ways...Wow!!Too much to process!!
Well,this portrait could be better,even more realistic,but there comes a time when my mind talks and talks about stop,because this kind of art did not bring me anything artistically.That's why I don't make things in this way.It's a road to nowhere for me.
So,there are many people who are known to reach a realistic level in their work,but the funny thing is that if you take away all the visual references that they use,the result is not good.
Be creative!!and you will know how painful,stressful,happy,beauty,amazing...it's the way of create.
