= Chen Hao, Chinese actress. This is from a TV role she played. Please note this IS in fact a VECTOR drawing (created in Illustrator CS4). (Initially, it was accidentally categorized during the upload process as a Digital Painting.)
It is in fact vector, not a digital painting/air brushed work.
I deleted my original version of this drawing; this is the newer version, with minor changes.
"Live Trace" was not used on any part of this drawing. Reference Photo Media = Adobe Illustrator Tools / features used in Illustrator:
Pen tool; gradient mesh; pathfinder (divide); blur filter (on some shadows on skin); clipping masks (on face and one arm), transparency panel.
"Live Trace" was not
used on any part of the drawing.Photoshop
was used only to re-size the vector drawing, and I added my name. The drawing itself (face, torso, hand, jewelry, head piece, clothing, etc) was all done in Illustrator. Please do not use this drawing without my permission.
Any Deviant Art groups I submit this to obviously do
have my permission to place this in their galleries.
I also do not
object to any Deviant Art members adding this to their Deviant Art collections or Deviant Art "favorite" collection(s), and Deviant Art obviously has my permission to have this art on their server(s).
