Warrior Princess Portrait

Warrior Princess (click here for a raw shot)

This is how I imagine a 13th century warrior princess would have posed for a portrait. Well, maybe in the real version there may have been a sword in hand, some blood and possibly the head of an ex lover. I’ll save that for the next portrait.

  • Always love that you link to raw shots – it’s really inspirational to see how you’ve worked on the photos. Thank you!

  • Hahaha to the head of the ex- lover! But honestly: you would never do that for reeeeeal!! …- would you? 😉

    I don’t suppose you’d be willing to just list the things you did in photoshop? How did you do the shadow of the blade, sharpen the tattoo so well, reshape the face, give the background a texture, for example. I wish you’d make more tutorials. Where did you go to learn how to do what you do? Do you have favorite tutorials that were most helpful to you that you’d be willing to post?

  • Thank you Adora, sometimes I forget to link to the raw shots but recently a lot of people have said how much they enjoy seeing both versions so trying my best to include it as much as possible.

    Hillany, me? Of course I would never do such a thing. 😛 *coughs*

    Mellyn, I must apologize as the raw shot I shared, I took that one after taking the original and it looks as if I didn’t get the windlight exactly the same. The shadow of the blade you see in this shot is actually directly from Second Life, even though in my raw shot it looks as if it’s more behind me. I just moved the sun over when I took that one. As for sharpening the tool, I use different variants of unsharp mask under filters to sharpen all of my images. Every time it’s different for each pic so you really just need to go in there and play with sliders. Reshaping the face was liquify and the background texture were just grunge photoshop brushes that I used and slapped on top of the original background. I learned most of these things just by watching photoshop youtube tutorials. I did one myself a while back, not sure if you saw it, but this is how I process my pictures usually, the steps that is, but it really does differ for each image:
    Hope that helps! <3

    Thank you so much, Strawberry. I imagine it’s not the tool, but the artist using the tool that makes your pics stand out. You’ve just got a great eye. I’ll keep plugging away.
