OMG A VEXEL

yep. I saw this picture and HAD to vexel it. It is [link] , quite a lovely picture if I do say so myself. I had a LOT of fun doing this, and its my best so far! (>.> I wonder when Ill get to the point where I wont say that anymore lol). I hope she enjoys the end product as much as I do :]

i am in LOVE with my job on the eyes. mmmmmm so yummy... :D

I still need to work out blending, skin is a bit choppy but the individual parts, (nose, eyes, mouth) came out quite nicely. It was a fun change to do this in black and white as well.

100% pen tool, a few touch up brushes and blending aftereffects.

Sorry that the hair has...mysteriously dissappeared. I cant vexel REGULAR hair, let alone dreads as awesome as these. I really didnt want to ruin it so I cropped it up to the face, and personally I like it this way better anyway.

Comments + critiques always EXTREMELY appreciated.
Thanks to *SekerAsar for title brainstorming help.

BTW SPOILER ALERT

Upcoming vexels:

Heath Ledger as The Joker
Barack Obama

Have you tried using the stroke path for hair? Use long smooth strokes and then stroke path, with the simulate pressure at about... iunno... 10%? It's almost like cheating! :iconteheplz:

Duuuuude. The eyes are just amazingly fantastic, I cannot say how intensely skilled you are. I bow to your insane eye-vexeling skills. Seriously, good job!
