Guinan aka Whoopie Goldberg by Nameda Guinan aka Whoopie Goldberg by Nameda
Thats Guinan from TNG played by Whoopie Goldberg one of my fave actresses.
I am quite ok with this artpiece... apart from the hair

as allways any helpful tips & constructive critics how I could do better are welcome

I had to resize as my pc nearly blew a gasket when I wanted to save the original sized file as jpg *lol* original is even double this size please view full size

Edit: added Frame reworked lips a tad bit

Original guinan pic I used as reference can be found here: [link]

fantastic picture although I agree with the hair. I guess it is sort of tricky? But then, to boldly go ... (etc)

haha \V/_ Guinan was one of the best things that happened to ST right after Spock

one day this one will end up in a redo like so many of my works did last year, some of them from scratch, some partially
I have learned a lot since this one was done so at least I will repaint the hair, and maybe the fabric folds but, I have to be in the mood than it will turn out better, like my Regina noctis deviation

I really agree with you. Guinan was a stroke of genius indeed :)

Can't wait for the modification for an already great picture :)

prissangel Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooph, well there is so many. I tend to enjoy when she does comedy most of the time. Though she is really a wonderful multi-talented actress. Though there are quite a bit of drama's that I adored her in.

Those were wonderful characters that she did. Haha, I don't really have just one favorite as well. I like quite a bit of them. Though the only thing that I don't watch that she is in is "The View" which is what she is doing currently.

Also, für mich als Anfänger in Sachen Digital Painting, ist das Bild genial. Man erkennt sofort Whoopi. Die Rasta-Locken würden mich jetzt nicht sooo stören. Vielleicht ist die Gesichtshaut etwas zu glatt?

Ciao

ja die Gesichtshaut ist etwas glatt wobei es in der Originalgröße einen Tick besser ist, aber wie kriege ich soetwas besser hin?

Ha, Du bist gut. Du bist doch die Spezialistin. Ich würde mir ein Photoshop-Forum suchen. Oder schau hier mal unter Photoshop. Es gibt auch ein deutsches Photoshop-Magazin.
