Updates, Updates, Updates!

Sun May 17, 2015, 9:37 AM
As some of you will notice, I've updated a few of my paintings. Just a tiny thing here and there that I wasn't happy with. 

Also, be expecting some new work soon! I've been devoting most of my time to my Photoshop brushes website over the last 10 years, but I'm now I'm getting back into the illustration / painting side of things. I've been updating my website - and moving it from rainne.com to stephanieshimerdla.com. Back when I first got interested in painting all those years ago, it seems everyone was using a pseudonym, so I'd gone by one, too. And made my website accordingly.

Now that I'm marketing myself as a professional illustrator, however, I'm going to stick with my real, full name.

Probably lots of smaller items first, as I get back into the swing of things. Then some larger projects to help round out my portfolio and show off all the new stuff I'm learning/have learned.

Hope everyone is doing well, and keep an eye out for my stuff!

In the meantime, please feel free to sign up for my newsletter on my website, where I'll be posting news, updates, and some in-progress images.

This is another reworked painting, but I added/changed so much, I wanted to re-upload.

Mask by slshimerdla
Mask

Inspired by "Anybody Listening" - Queensryche

Update 2015: I updated quite a few things on this piece, so I'm re-uploading. Her bun was completely redone, and her hair now has proper shading to account for her head shape!

Fleeting by slshimerdla
Fleeting
Beauty is fleeting.

Painted by hand via Photoshop CC & Wacom Intuos 3 Tablet

Update 2015: updated her hair and darkened the background to more adequately show how she is dissolving into the wind

Dragonfly Queen by slshimerdla
Dragonfly Queen
An update on "Dragonfly Queen" -- I was thoroughly unhappy with the hair previously. Flat, without the degree of backlighting that I wanted, etc. While still not perfect, I'm quite a bit happier with it now. Also edited the negative space around her for a more pleasing composition.

If you're interested, you can compare it with the old version here
