Not Broken by Suzanne-Helmigh Not Broken by Suzanne-Helmigh
'Waiting for her love to return from imprisonment. Her heart shares the same faith.'

:) I've fallen in love with a certain color palette and lighting, those to made love and this is their baby.

The music that goes with this song: [link]

Livestreamed a little at the end, not very entertaining but nice music!

Might be cool for you guys to see how important in fact the lighting of an artwork is in terms of realism. Here comes a version where I switched all the lighting off.

This is so admirable.

Would you please consider some of the
actors in "Game Of Thrones"  or "Vikings" as subjects?

Do you take commissions?

keep up the lovely work...

Incredible lighting, and I love that you shared the other version too to make your point about realism.  This is saved in my folder of helpful examples :)

Really like the way you've done her lips, open just a bit, showing her teeth.  Wonderful use of light!

Followed the link to your other example, and yes, the slashes of light across her face adds tremendously to the depth and sense of immediacy and realism.  It also adds a sense of anticipation, along with a touch of fear...

Beautiful piece!

So... last week I coulda swore I saw this painting, but with 6 different lighting scenarios... but now I can't find it on your page anywhere. What happened to that thing? Sorry if it's obvious. I just wanted to look at it again.

Oh no please don't this was my mistake. That is my boyfriends account. I accidently uploaded it while was still logged in. But everytime I click the remove button I get an error page :(. I'll try to remove it again today or else alter the text to explain it.

Thanks for posting the tutorials, WIPS and the livestreaming! I really appreciate all the help you provide. Would you mind describing what kind of lighting effects you added to this painting? I paint my in but adding lighting effects seems to give an additional boost to the works. Again, thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!!!

I work with a brightness and contrast layer to make the brightness, and another one to make the shading.
When light breaks on skin you get this vague red/orange lining on the edges, those were just painted in a normal layer.
Just always think in 3D when applying lighting, follow the shapes or it will look flat. :)

Wow, I really like the lighting here. The difference between this one and the other version was really surprising. I love the expression, the little creases around the lips and the eyes, and the shape of the eyebrows. <3

it might sound strange,but I really love those dust particles-they give the hint of realism and believable situation!

The lighting on this is simply superb (but I'm sure you know that). I also really like her facial expression. It's just so photoreal, it's amazing really :'). Keep it up.
