Guzman! --Detail

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The original 'Guzman!' in this gallery shows what can be done with a pencil drawing, a fair amount of time, and a Linux-based illustration tool called 'The Gimp'. It's a lot of work--I kid you not--took me about a day and a half to do the job. But the detail is pretty remarkable, at least I think so. However, the size-constraints and resolution constraints of the internet in general and Elfwood in particular, make it unwise (and impossible) to upload a 45 megabyte file that was scanned at 300 DPI. (Who'd want to download something THAT big anyway?) I made an 'extracted sample' of the original piece of work, showing Guzman's face. As you can see, the detailing is still extremely clear, even though the drawing has been 'blown up' to slightly more than three times its original size. (The original can be magnified well over 500 percent without showing any degradation of the image quality) I am particularly proud of the detailing in Guzman's eyes (eyerises, pupils, reflectivity her nose, the crinkes on the bridge of her nose, and her mouth and teeth. At this resolution, you can see that her right front incisor is chipped, several of her bottom front incisors are crooked, and that her fangs are quite lethally real. If you look really closely, you can even see the saliva on her teeth and gums...Uh, oh! Don't look _THAT_ close, mate! She's HUNGRY!!!
