Daily Deviation

Given 2005-11-20
Appearing to be a nice photograph at first sight, Pepper Rock by *Artgerm turns out to be a stunningly realistic looking digital painting, depicting his adorable character Pepper from his 'different styles - unified subject' illustration project, wearing a sexy and elegant ensemble of a retro sci-fi designed swimsuit and matching skintight over-knee boots and headgear that simply speaks for itself.

Also viewable as our Print of the Day. ( Featured by MidnightExigent )

Painter, free hand, photoshop, rhino and 3ds max, and I know you can handle alot of other programs as well, also your flow work donīt seem to be negatively affected by using so many softwars and you can go with many different styles, gestures, anatomy, light stituations and what not,
 is this the power of being in a studio or is that you just move everywhere and know all kind of ppl all the time? you are really an exposed mind/person and that is what I like the most on you. I still donīt know how you do it but I will try to understand.

OMG that does not look like a painting-congratulations, I thought it was a picture, even when I zoomed in the rock and the water behind the rock was the only thing that gave it away

*_* This looked real when I first saw it! But then it says digital art and I was like "Oh, it's just an amazing drawing." You are too good at details. This is so amazing! :clap::D

JooPe Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2012
Interesting, painters often attempt to simulate realistic appearance/life-like subject but I haven't seen too many hand-painting an image, even digitally, to give it the characteristics of a 3-D model. My only complaint is that the massive difference in contrast/definition between the 'model' and rock(s) to some degree takes away from the image, the sky however is blurred yet still seems to fit perfectly.

OMG, i really like your artwork. Absolutely adorable, i just open wide my eyes of seeing this painting with great lighting composition. I'll put this in my fave gallery. :D
