Pepper Potts by AlessiaPelonzi Pepper Potts by AlessiaPelonzi
Drum roll...
Here it is my first attempt at photorealistic drawing without photo references!
Of course, being a portrait of the beautiful Gwyneth Paltrow (red haired, as Pepper Potts in Iron Man), I had to take a look at her photos...
I hope you like it! The result is not very photorealistic, but it's a first attempt and I am optimistic for the next!

This looks amazing! Your background is outstanding, and the floors are very well done. You did wonderfully on the shadows, along with the creases and folds of her top. Her face and hair are very realistic, and if I had not been told otherwise, I would have thought you had simply altered a photograph! She really does look like Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts! Also, her toes and fingers are just wonderfully done! This is extremely well executed, top notch, whatever else you might call this, it's just awesome and you have done an amazing job on this beautiful, amazing masterpeice!
What do you think?

Well, I think you got ridiculously close to photo-realistic.
Not quite there, but an amazing piece nonetheless, very awesome. :)

Thank you very much! I'm currently practicing with Photoshop to find a less cold style...
