My digital art

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Tina Russell @ 9:23 pm

Hey there, dear readers! It’s about time I showed you some of my digital art, lovingly crafted on my tablet computer. These are all done as practice, using some photo or another as reference. These can all be found at my Flickr page. All of my works in this post are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike 3.0 Unported, the short version of which is “do what you want with them, but credit me, and if you make something else out of them, use the same license terms.” Thanks!

First is Bodil! She’s the lovely woman who writes Being Bodil. I’m really grateful to her for the opportunity to do this. (Reference)


(By the way, if you detected a resemblance to the Shadow The Hedgehog logo in the calligraphy-style stuff at the bottom, you’re right!)

Next is a painting of Stassa, the illustrious Secret Whore. I wish she would come back to Flickr sometime, but in the meantime, what she has up is gorgeous. (Reference)


Here’s a painting of a happy girl in Brazil during the Carnival at Bahia. The photo just gave me the happy shivers when I saw it, so I needed to make a painting of it. (Reference)


The photo was taken by Fabio Rodrigues Pozzebom of the Agência Brasil, the Brazilian national news agency. All their content is Creative Commons-licensed; isn’t that awesome?

Next we have my friend Natalya. She’s super gorgeous. She gave me permission to do a painting from one of her Facebook photos, and it was an honor.


She really does have those poofy bubble-cheeks. (Natalya: just teasing! You’re beautiful.)

Next is the mother lode! I’m really, really proud of this. It took about a month of continuous work. (Hopefully I’ll get faster with practice!) I learned so-o-o-o much doing this. (Maybe I’ll even have a background next time!) Since it exceeds Flickr’s maximum size, click here for the extra-special-super-large version. (Reference)


It’s based on a photo by Marcus J. Ranum of the beautiful Carly Champagne. It’s an obvious joke, but I can’t hold it in: somebody needs to bottle her and sell her.

That’s all! Please comment!
