Feeling the need to explore old skills, but using the digital tools I have become so familiar with, I have been trying out a Cintiq 21UX from Wacom. This device works like any other Wacom pen tablet, but with the enormous advantage of also being a screen that you can draw and paint directly onto within the likes of Photoshop and Painter etc…
… this thing really is stunning, and has had me so convinced that I am really painting again (after at least 10 years not doing it!), that I even tried to smudge the paint with my finger tip at one point, and blow away any dust (from pastel/pencil) on another! 😀
This is a crop of a full body portrait I have been wanting to paint for a number of years – still a work in progress, but the face & hair are mostly done now.

i was just searchin the net for tips on how to get realistic 3d modeling fone when i came across ur site.
anyway i think this portrait is just fantastic…in fact one could well mistake it for a photo instead of a painting (although digital)
keep up the amazing work…cheers 🙂
