I think the idea and the colors would look beautiful against the grey, kinda cold look of New York :) And I am making an entry. I know I'm not that great, but its something fun to do, and who knows? :P

To be frank, this is the best entry I have seen. I went through as many as I could, and didn't find one I liked as much as this one. I think it would be amazing as a mural. Since so many are accusing this of being a photo, I would like to point out a couple things that point away from it being a photo. I am not trying to "bash" anyone, I would simply like to bring a few things to light.

First, look at the Dr. Pepper can. If you look closely, the can is slightly larger than it would be in real life, relative to the girl. This is great for advertisement and artistic purposes, but is not the way it would look in a photograph. Second, take a look at the hand. Now, take a closer look. That doesn't look like a photograph to me. Also, the way the hair falls over the shoulder. Now, I'm not saying these are mistakes, because I think they add to the feel of the drawing overall. I'm just trying to give anyone who wishes to accuse you of something some things to consider

Point is, this looks like a legitimate digital painting to me, and I love it. It's wonderful, and fits the theme perfectly. I hope you win, Jessica. This is by far my favorite of the entries I've seen. I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I figured if they would share theirs, I would share mine too.This is a beautiful work of art that I'm sure took a lot of work on your part.

Several here just blurred or manipulated a photo, which in my opinion is in violation of the rules. This is very close to a photo use, which I suspect you did for the face, but altered to stylize enough it is more art than photo alteration. I like the over all feel and the simple joy you've captured on your face. The can is out of proportion (too big), but the Ad Exec's may like that. Best luck. You'd have my vote.

heres my ref for kinda the hair and head
[link]

and this for the shoulders
[link]

and i have a friend who does a lot of life drawing and she showed me how to do a hand in an old sketch
and i used a lot of my AP notes and handouts

the ref for the face was my moms old roller derby photo with some model in vogues eyebrows hahaha
but the transition from the neck to chest was BAD so i covered it with hair
I used a lot of transforming too (warping perspective all that)

and i know the cans a bit big but i had a really hard time on the lips so i thought it
was important to hide it :P but hey a bigger logo right ;D hahaha and thanks! you seem to know what youre talking about
so i think its a good sign

Keep your head high. It is sad how one person can make this experience so unpleasant, but there will always be rude 'Jack-offs' like that. Try to remember there's probably 10 nice admirers of your art to every hater, so don't let them get you down.

yeah but its okay because its just part of being an artist
i think its been an overall good experience to be honest! and yeah i agree
and the worst part is theres nothing you can really do about them hahaha i guess im not
that aggressive if i dont like a piece in the contest or if it was obviously done in paint
I dont say anything it takes a lot of courage to post art you know? :/
and thats such a great way to think of things! hahaha thanks for the cheer up!
always appreciated :D

I like the image and I think its good work but i agree that this appears to be a smudged photo with some textures on top. i wont rip on you for it, I use photo references when i'm doing a drawing but you might want to double check the rules on the photo filter.

Jessica-Portillo Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011
its smudged but its not a photo :/
but there is a photo texture of a paper bag over it
and under too? kinda hahaha the process was weird i started the painting on a photo of a paper bag
didnt like it then tried to edit it out and use a white canvas then continue doing my piece
and at the end overlay it with the texture and blah!

The prosecution contends that there is no evidence in either your artwork on this site or your own statements that would lead one to believe this is anything other than another of your photographs. The prosecution rests. The court of public opinion will now decide.

This image is striking. It takes talent to arrange effectively arrange visual elements and create an eye-catching color scheme. It would look fantastic as a mural. You are a liar. And that is just sad because you have talent just not as a painter.

Be honest and claim the hard work you DID not the work you didn't do.

Judging by your gallery you didn't paint this. All you did is smudge the photo the make it appear to be brush strokes. Anyone can see this by looking at the link [link] that has a background in photography, and graphic design . Also the fact that the images EXIF data kinda gives it away.

That was interesting, but I cannot say that proves this was a photo manipulation. I had not taken the time to read over these other comments before making my own assessment. If she says she painted it I would be inclined to believe her. Not because I want her approval. I am a fan of Patric Nagel who did similar facial renditions. If she is this good she has a lot of promise and could go very far with this abstract style.

The decency to defend what's right? You have a skewed view of what's 'right'. Him saying "go back to ur moms pussy" is right? That's terribly sad you think that way. White knight or not, that's bashing. Unlike what I've said. If you think me giving my opinion based on your gallery is BASHING you really need to have thicker skin.

First off, learn the difference between you're and your before you call someone 'stupid'. I am not in possession of 'just'. Imbecile.People like you, who obviously lack tact and intelligence, often seem to use 'you're' and 'your' the wrong way.

Also, you fail at trolling; honestly. My mother is dead, and has been for 10 years. I'm not 16, I'm 27. Huge difference there kiddo. So, you saying "go back to ur mommas pussy" doesn't phase me in the slightest. That's an easy way you can tell someone isn't actually intelligent; they resort to petty insults first off, and they obviously have the mental capacity of a retarded 5 year old. Plus the fact that you went right for the 'mom' comment is not only hilarious, but VERY lame; only because it's so OLD to crack mom jokes as if people give a shit.

Now, on to her work...

It won't win the competition. It won't even place in the top 30. It's quite hilarious some people seem to think she painted it. Yet, some don't seem notice tell-tale signs it's just a smudged up version of a photo. The 'puddle' comment she's made is really funny and rather moronic. You can see missed hairs, the nose is exactly like her nose(nifty huh?), the lines are warped. Using a 'puddle' as she calls it, and then smudging doesn't negate the, again, tell-tale signs it's a smudged photo.


So keep being Mr. White Knight. You're the fool, not me. It's like you know her or something, and must want to fuck her. :)

You wrong? Before you say someone isn't 'smart' you should really look at how you write things.Improper grammar, and punctuation is a terrible thing.

Your gallery HERE is all anyone can see. That's it. Your 'other' work has absolutely nothing to do with dA as it's not HERE. Now, if you had it here people could judge based upon that. But since, as you stated, it's not uploaded here then it has no merit in this discussion.

Now, your 'painting' doesn't look painted. It looks smudged , and lacks quality. If you were painting via Photoshop(which you are, and are using a MAC), the lines would be more crisp even if using a soft brush. There's a couple fatal flaws to your 'painting'. You can see hairs that are pixelated that are obviously not smudged, the lines around the thumb ,and the neck, too show the warped issue one gets when using smudge at a higher strength.

I could add something else about the EXIF data but I'm sure you have absolutely no idea what it is, and what it shows.

Jessica-Portillo Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011
yea in do use a mac but my method is different it's not airbrush or traditional graphic paintings I chose the color make a puddle and smudge from there
the hand and the hair points that look pixelated are that way because I sharpened them before I applied the orange layer and other special effects so they wouldn't be washed out and can be altered later sooooooo yes the neck and looks that way because I do smudge but not from a photo and ooooo a typo that makes me such a terrible artist right? I don't need to impress you why would someone who goes around attempting to bash other peoples artwork to make themselves look better be worth anything to this community?

kokabeel Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011  Professional Photographer
Dear girl, I'm not bashing you. If I were I would be saying something along the lines of "You suck!", "You art is horrible!!!", or generally anything that was remotely insulting.

Secondly, you're the one who mentioned myself as being 'you aren't as smart as you think you are'. Thus the basis as to my comment on how you've written your reply. It has nothing to do with you being a 'terrible artist';our words, not mine. I said terrible regarding the GRAMMAR and PUNCTUATION.

I'm not trying to make myself look better. Grasping for straws? It's my opinion, which you can ignore if you like, that you simply smudged out a photo. You've been here a few weeks; you can deal with other peoples opinions or move along. Trust me when I say that people can be harsher when it comes to work than what I've said. Might I add wasn't 'bashing'.

My opinion, regardless, won't matter. It's that of the judges. If they think all you've done is smudge over a photo you'll be disqualified. Simple.
