Painting video of "Crazy Kristina"

in #art4 years ago (edited)


This is a pinup style illustration from a photo I took of a girl named Kristina. She wasn't actually crazy of course, I added some bits in my painting that make her look like it. :)

It's speeded up a bit, I'm narrating the process over the top. It's about 27 minutes long.
I used some free Gamelan music in the background.
Hope you like it, let me know what you think!


My name is Steven Stahlberg, I joined Steemit in December 2017. I was born in Australia, grew up in Sweden, but now live with my wife in Kuala Lumpur. I've lived here about nine years so far, and love it!
I work as a lead artist in a game company here. My two sons live in Sweden. I'm working on a graphic novel in my spare time. I use an older version of Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos 3, larger size.
I do self-upvote, but I wait so I'm not the first. I don't buy votes. Thanks for watching!

Very nice tutorial for such an interesting drawing! I liked the part where you were creating the curtain. At first, it just looked so basic and it transformed into such an elegant background to compliment Kristina in the foreground.

Great job with this post. I'm going to bookmark it for the future, when I inevitably start messing around with digital artistry!

damn this is krazy art!!! I love the added elements and you are just simply amazing!

@Stahlberg is the digitalmancer! The visage looks super perfect and I like the way the T-shirt was worked. Thanks!!

the gamelan guys are really at it!
