Cassie by LuisaPreissler Cassie by LuisaPreissler
It's so relaxing to finally paint something you're comfortable with! ;D Done after work. Still a bit sketchy and unfinished, but I like it.

It's my depiction of a character from a book I read recently. Now entered for the train your brain contest.

I just finished reading this book half an hour ago, having spent most of my day/night living in Cassie/Lexie's mind, and came online searching for her. 
And found her.

Not only is this a beautiful piece, it fits her perfectly. I can see both women in her face: scarred, dark, but determined detective, and flirty, mercurial student. I particularly like the light/dark contrast in her face, and on the same note, the contrast between her detailed face and sketchy-er hair/jacket. 

Intense and gorgeous. Thank you for bringing life to the character.

Thanks so much, this means a lot to me. :)
It's always a great challenge to bring a character down to paper the exact way you see it in your mind when reading a book. And that you too could imagine her looking like this makes me very happy! :)

Wow sehr schön, ich mag vor allem die Haut, die so lebendig und plastisch, aber auch natürlich aussieht. Überhaupt schöne Farbgebung! Hast du eigentlich eine Referenz benutzt oder ist alles aus dem Kopf?

:iconluisapreissler:
LuisaPreissler Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Ich habe verschiedene Referenzen benutzt, u.a. für die Ideengebung bei der Frisur und dann für Licht/Schatten hab ich ein Foto von mir gemacht und das noch mit mehreren anderen Referenzen gemixt, sonst birgt es die Gefahr, dass es zu sehr nach mir aussieht hinterher ;)

wow - she is awesome - so intense! i love the color :P! and of course - like always - i love the loose brush-work. it's more lively (is that a word? :D) that way! and the hair is fucking great! i see, that you loved doing this!

Yay, thank you :) Many people seem to like loose brushwork, I'm afraid with me it's a consequence of sheer lazyness ;D
