Dodge and burn contest:
Goal:
Make a square canvas with a grey background and create an image using dodge, burn, and smudge tools only. You can only use these tools, but it is allowed to use external references to base your work on. If you do, don't forget to mention them in your sources or SBS guide! Take some intermediate screenshots to show the progress of your work. Good luck!

JUST DIGITAL DRAWING
I used the burn and dodge tools only, with the support of my Wacom Intuos 3 Tablet.
I used this photo as the reference: http://chamberstock.deviantart.com/art/Spooky-Face-2-90286364
Great thanks to chamberstock for that image.
I don't believe that I can finish this one in a day. Thanks to Pxleyes contests, they help me improved a lot ^^.
Please watch the Hi-Res to see the close up detail, this is the most realistic artwork I've made :D. Thank you!

avatar hereisanoop

I am forced to add one more comment..... please write a tutorial about it.....

avatar erikuri
erikuri says:

Why so scared? And do you still ask???
My God, it's a perfect work, my friend... And I agree with Anoop 'bout the tut! I'd like to learn how to do something alike!
Just one thing: and what is that stuff in her nose? Irk...

author says:

Thank you, my friends, for your kind words and favorites. I surprised myself because I was scared to try this kind of work (I tried several times before but always took me a week or more to finish). The realistic portrait is much easier in BW and I used a reference to study the face structure, skin texture, etc. so basically I didn't create anything new and I'm sure if you observe the reference and do the detail carefully, you can do better than me. I'll try to make tutorial for that but maybe by making another one, not this one. @Erica: the thing in her nose is the rest of the viper (tail), it intruded her through the nose, through the mouth and now finding the way out... nightmare, huh . @ricky777: glad to know that you're still here, have a good time, man.
