I did this image for our own portfolio, actually my intention was to produce some realistic 3D portrait, but using 2D techniques.
I thought some character inspired in Final Fantasy series, a beautifull japanese girl. But as I would like to focus on her face, just like a portrait it wasn’t necessary prepare a entire action scene, just to show her face and expression.
Like in Final Fantasy characters her expression is nice, calm but impressible.
There are some “hidden” details in the image (as always) that can be found with more attention.
