Daily Deviation

Given 2010-01-20
Suggester says:"In my opinion the best portrait I've seen in a very long time. An original style from an original vector artist" ( Suggested by ChewedKandi and Featured by LineBirgitte )
Guess who's back posting on dA with a new vector style? And what a unique style he has brought to the table!

After seeing some works in progress of previous pieces in your new style, I feel that this piece has brought together your new experience in the style and has been finely tuned to perfection.

While keeping the piece mellow and sedated, it's very much alive with manic strokes of colour and shapes.

The subject, Adele's personality seems to come through on this piece... her attitude and passion, yet showing how melodic her vocal stylings are. It is definately a piece where the style suits the subject.

I love how the edges of the portrait are not smooth... I admire this so much... being able to give this chaotic style in such a controlled manner.

The subtle gradients work well... infact it's not until you're close up that you see these details. The cheek in slight shadow and around the eyes. It's those details which bring such depth into it.

However, if I had one ting I'd change it would be to add more depth to the hair. The same depth which is shown in the face. It's not a major thing but I think it would balance out the vector.

I feel like Oliver Twist... please Phig, I'd like some more. More work in this new style.

The simplicity and the colors of this picture really caught my eye when I accidentally looked at the today's daily deviations.

There's a nice flow from eyebrows to nose, the color choice in her hair is quite unusual and wild (meanwhile Adele's face seems to be rather gentle), but harmonizes very well with the rest of the image. I like the way the artist gave purple highlights on the eyes and mouth region that stand out of the outlines of her face, and also the green color shades on her cheek. The strong contrast and the big areas of black gives it a very impressive feeling to this picture. Now to think that this is made with vectors makes me shudder in awe. This should justify the 5 stars on Impact and Technique.
There's a lot of emotion in this piece. The singer looks like she is closing her eyes to clear her mind from all of excitement before her performance, or she is singing in the middle of a song. It's like you are able to see in her face expression how much she is concentrating on her show and performance and how passionate she is.

It's a very unusal way of doing a portrait, though there are many out there that use this kind of shadowing. But overall, I like this very much. Congrats on the DD!
