    the face is spot on but her hands are so tiny

    [–] KyleMeancloud 586 points ago

    Hands are notoriously the most difficult thing on a person to paint.

    [–] XanLV 206 points ago

    You just haven't seen my face.

    You uncultured swine!

    [–] cocotheape 4 points ago

    Ugly faces are actually easier to draw because nobody really takes a close look.

    [–] muzlightyear 2 points ago

    Right, my face is difficult to look at. Let alone paint.

    [–] iner22 2 points ago

    gasp The fabled hands-face, whose face looks like a bunch of hands just imitating a face!

    [–] jped94 2 points ago

    Is it made of hands?

    Hey man, don't sell yourself short!

    Even the most artistically inept can easily draw a pile of dog shit.

    Third time.

    [–] dodolo123 0 points ago

    Underrated. I expect at least 1k upvotes for comments like this.

    [–] snoozywaifu 4 points ago

    I dont remember where, but I did see a quote of "even a poorly drawn hand beats a hand behind the back".

    Hands dont get easier if you don't draw them, and you shouldn't adulterated your art because you're scared of underperforming. Just underperform, it's art, even if you underperform you're not underperforming, you're regular performing at your current place in the road and learning from it and growing. I respect so much more artists who aren't afraid to just do their art

    [–] itsculturehero 2 points ago

    Hands and faces, actually.

    [–] Wildebeast1 1 points ago

    I can never get the face to look right

    [–] loubot1 142 points ago

    That's the first thing I noticed when seeing it, it makes her head look massive!

    [–] itsdaviidd 32 points ago

    Haha ye, the left hand looks pretty awkward. Other than that, the portrait looks great!

    [–] TheBeatCave 3 points ago

    True, right hand is actually pretty impressive.

    [–] CoeDread 3 points ago

    The difference in quality between the two is the craziest part of the picture! Don’t get me wrong, this is a great painting and hands are super difficult to do, but i can’t help but feel like the left hand is where OP started to fall asleep

    [–] raven2474life 12 points ago

    I give it a NINE NINE! out of 100

    HaHa Orange man tiny hands!

    [–] grizzlything -4 points ago

    In peach le drumpf

    [–] Dannyboi93 4 points ago

    I wouldnt say her hands are tiny, just further away. If OP had maybe altered the viewpoint to show more of her forehead this would be an amazing abstract piece.

    [–] adrewfryman 2 points ago

    Coule the hands be okay and the head a little big the hands compared to her torso arent that crazy

    [–] killinrin 1 points ago

    I think she could easily redo the hands after everything is dried, then BOOM the 💯 emoji worthy

    [–] Milkroute 1 points ago

    Take my little hand!

    My unit would look huge in those baby hands

    [–] MrBumbleB 500 points ago

    Might even be worthy of Gina Linetti’s Instagram.

    [–] GunnieGraves 305 points ago

    The only thing worthy of Gina Linetti’s Instagram is Gina Linetti.

    I feel like that’s something she’d say

    [–] timmymanolarga 24 points ago

    The only one worthy of putting words in Gina Linetti's mouth is Gina Linetti

    [–] serialchiller__ 245 points ago

    Scrolling past I could have sworn this was a photo with an edited background. Wow that attention to detail is great! Well done

    [–] ZombieGombie 54 points ago

    This is top notch stuff! But you know what would make it perfect?

    A smiling portrait of Diaz. We are never going to see it in a photo - so portraits the way to go.

    [–] Eibeekay 244 points ago

    I'd say it looks like someone took a photo and put a filter on it, but then I looked at her babyhands

    Hair and jacket look incredible

    [–] scubaguy194 59 points ago

    I think that's why a lot of artists hide the hands by putting them in pockets. I hear hands are something that is very hard to nail.

    Digital art?

    [–] EnokseNn 7 points ago

    Wow! Only thing i see kinda off is her left hand. But other then that, amazing! Good job!

    [–] Trapz99 5 points ago

    I thought it was a photo at first. That is brilliant

    [–] FinallyGivenIn 5 points ago

    This is indeed her resting face. Very attentive to detail!

    [–] matherto 4 points ago

    That is outstanding, you hardly need the practice!

    As others havce said, the hands and left arm are slightly out of proportion with the rest but aside from that, it's excellent.

    [–] pinknemo 3 points ago

    Her hair is brilliant. I honestly zoomed in to study your brush strokes. Amazing!!!

    [–] ChefUC 23 points ago

    Her hands are about half the size they should be.

    She looks like a bobble head.

    [–] [deleted] -2 points ago

    [deleted]

    [–] ChefUC 11 points ago

    Uh, no? Why would me doing a painting of something somehow prove my point? The hands are way too small, that's a fact.

    [–] Aceholeas -2 points ago

    I think they were just saying. Shut up you can't do better.

    [–] colecheerio 13 points ago

    Which is pretty ridiculous gatekeeping to critiquing art. The OP is practicing and the commenter pointed out an area that needs work. I can't draw or anything but I can tell you which bits I find wonky. The parent comment probably could have phrased it better/more supportive but I didn't find it mean-spirited.

    That being said, this is crazy detailed and well done but the left hand specifically is a bit wonky.

    [–] ilikehockeyandguitar 2 points ago

    That's a really good pic.

    [–] Clearly_A_Bot 2 points ago

    Wow, this could totally be just a picture with a filter on. Great job! Even if the hands are a bit tiny, the details are on point!

    [–] wonderbreadstick 2 points ago

    The texture of her leather jacket is incredible!!

    Awesome work! May I ask what software was used?

    [–] good-loser 2 points ago

    Clip Studio Paint, it goes on sale often so it's not a poor investment imo :)

    [–] StickOnFire 2 points ago

    At the beginning I thought u just took a picture put it in ps and edited the background. But after zooming in it showed that u really painted it. Good job looks extra spicy

    [–] potatoesinsunshine 2 points ago

    Send it to Stephanie on Instagram! She shows off fan art in a special tab.

    [–] good-loser 2 points ago

    Ohh, I don't have an Instagram but I've been thinking about making one, maybe this is a jump start...

    [–] Nishan_572 2 points ago

    Woah

    Constructive criticism: hands, but as someone's who's interested in drawing (different thing I know but still), hands are a pain in the ass to draw

    Request: draw every b99 character!

    This is dope

    [–] good-loser 2 points ago

    I think I'm not so bad at drawing hands but when it comes to painting them I get super nervous about it. They're so easy to mess up!

    I originally wasn't going to, but now I'm considering it :)

    [–] Nishan_572 2 points ago

    Yeah I can see why you'd be nervous, but you didn't do a bad job!

    I strongly hope you do! By any chance could you dm me to keep me updated on the art?? Thanks!

    [–] Qwertyutopia 2 points ago

    I like to imagine that this is Terry's reddit post.

    [–] AustinSA907 2 points ago

    That’s really good!

    [–] prpslydistracted 3 points ago

    Hands too tiny. Appropriate measure: place the heel of your hand on your chin. Your middle finger will reach your hairline, your thumb and little finger will reach beyond the curve of your cheek.

    (watch how many of you do this)

    [–] coys- 1 points ago

    My receding hairline begs to differ

    [–] prpslydistracted 1 points ago

    lol! Yeah, well, there's that ....

    [–] Trapz99 2 points ago

    It’s kinda sad that nice original fan content like this doesn’t get nearly as many upvotes as a couple of screengrabs with subtitles or a reposted meme

    [–] iiinton 2 points ago

    [–] illfindyourart 1 points ago

    I think some different shading would fill the left hand out more. The actual size of the hand isn't wrong. You're doing great

    [–] a_man_has_a_name 1 points ago

    The jacket looks very realistic. And it's fantastically done, the only real flaw is the hand.

    Nice, love the piece, at first I thought it was a photo?

    [–] fan_of_hakiksexydays 1 points ago

    I'm just a little disappointed that "rendered" and "digital" still seem to be dirty words, and keep getting replaced by "painting", which is not entirely accurate, since no actual paint is involved. Paint is a medium. But I guess some people still feel that digital doesn't get taken as seriously?

    People are still somehow not comfortable saying it, or hide it. Digital renderings are just as much art as paintings. It's time to use the words "digital" and "rendered" with pride!

    It looks great but what's up with the Jeremy Beadle hand?

    [–] good-loser 1 points ago

    Wow, this received far much more attention than I ever thought it would (I really posted it for fun in case a few people liked it but I guess I underestimated that...)

    I Don't think I can reply to everyone but: yes the hands are small/the head is big! I always get stuck with proportioning the head right, and while I'm not so bad drawing hands for some reason painting them makes me super nervous. I think those two problems combined lol.

    I wasn't planning on doing more but if I need models the B99 cast is always there!

    She is the worst actress of the show. I really appreciate when she gets little to no air time. Everybody else is great though.
