FAITH by J-Estacado FAITH by J-Estacado

Please add my facebook page for news, recent informations wip and other stuff :

Some months ago I decided that after nearly 3 years, it was time to do some Oil paintings again; As I don't truly master this media, I was also a bit "rusted" in term of using it :lol:
So... yeah I decided to do an other serie of portrait of some models.
A good thing would be to have 3 different type of faces, 3 different style, and 3 different level of difficulties (no that's no video games ! )

For these; I already had someone in mind, the other one is someone I already made a painting of, I just had to find the third one.
Finally It's someone that I know who linked me to the shot that i used for this painting , More or less telling me that she thought Faith kinda looked like some of the girls I use to draw :)
So.... yea I thought it could be cool to start with the kind of "face shape" I use to draw.It would be better to start with something I'm comfortable with.
Also the tatoos could be interesting to paint. I never painted tatoos actually :)

And yeah, like every time ; I contacted the model for approval before the start of the painting, AND AFTER for one last approval once the pic is done ( what i would call "if you think this sucks you can refuse that I submit it on the internet " :lol: )

Hope ya like it !

My other models are in this gallery :


-Oil painting on canvas 40 x80 cm (16x32")

While I didn't not took the original photo, This painting is © me . No commercial purpose involved.

damn that's cool. The ink the bling, her beautiful face. There isn't a single square inch of that painting that isn't rich and full of detail. Bloody fucking brilliant, bloody fucking brilliant

Looks the sparkle of the diamonds and the way the chain pulls into her arm.

Quand je regarde les anciens travaux que tu faisais sur le matériel, il est clair que tu t'es grandement amélioré! C'est beaucoup moins plat, beaucoup plus vivant, un brin froid, mais ça semble correspondre au modèle.
J'aime beaucoup. tu donnes? :P

si tu te referes au lien qui donne a la gallerie des autres modeles; la difference reste tout de meme que les autres ont été peintes a l'acrylique. c'est en un sens un média plus simple, mais ceci dit vu que la peinture seche en 2/3 minutes; elle rend les modelé difficile; alors qu'avec l'huile tu as facilement 48h pour faire ce que tu veux. par contre ça reste un média exclusif, qui n'aime pas les autre technique, la ou avec de l'acrylique je peut foutre quasiment n'importe quoi en renforcement :)

Et NON, je ne donne pas ;)
