mint jellies by loish mint jellies by loish
an illustration i made for imagineFX, where i was asked to make a tutorial on drawing female portraits loish-style, hence the reason why this is very much same-old-same-old :] the tutorial has step-by-steps of the illustration with text, as well as progress vids on the DVD. more about the magazine here - [link]

drawn in photoshop cs5 with a wacom tablet. for more info on my artwork please visit [link] | blog | facebook

I guess this was the first piece of yours I ever saw. From the ImagineFX tute. I found my way here via fcagno's pics and as soon as I saw ur work I scanned your whole gallery to see if it really was you that did this illustration. and i'm really pleased I found it! And you. I'm fleshing out my fave's with the style I really like to see. Maybe even attempt myself! I love your style, the girls are so supercute and sweet, the sharp contrast in the shading of the faces is totally your style!
I've jus noticed how long you've been on DA, have you got any work from way back before u joined? Your earlier pieces are still as awesome as ur new pieces so you are wicked consistent
Love, love, love ur stuff!! ^_^

This is spectacular! My friend showed me this picture because it looks a lot like me! (Unnervingly so.... therefore, beautiful job XD)

Loish...probably a lot of people say this. But you are my absolute inspiration. I'm thirteen and have absolutely given up on my art style. I don't like or love your work, I merely envy at how you can be so amazing and creative with your work. Basically, you're brilliant. I've studied your art style for quite sometime, but your art is way to advanced, although I will keep trying.

All I want to tell you is that you're the worlds best artist in my eyes, and no one could ever be better then you. You're perfect.
loish Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2011
you're very young, there's a lot of time to improve! i'm glad you like my work, thanks so much for the sweet comment :]

I actually just got the book with this listed in it last week when I was going through your artwork I thought this style was familiar... then when I saw this one my jaw dropped... great work ^.^ I'll be sure to read your section of the book!

Do you know where I can get a copy of that issue? I've been searching the ImagineFX website and they only have a small handful of back issues available for download and yours isn't one of them. I'd really like to buy it and check out the dvd.
