Could you do another one with reddish skin tones? Dejah was supposed to have (as a native of Barsoom) reddish skin. Not sure if it is similar to a person who spends much time outdoors with little clothing or more to do with the thin atmosphere and the lack of protection from the Sun.  If not, maybe do Thuvia, instead? Awesome work as always.

I have been inspired to dig deeper into Photoshop (past taking out red eye and whitening teeth) by your works. One issue I have is trying to match skin and lighting tones from two separate photos as you do in yours (all the meshes in yours have a smooth natural look). Are there any suggestions on what tools (in what order) I might try in order to do better with this type of effect in Photoshop?

Really love your work!

P.S. How long does it take to do something like this(assuming you can find the stock photos relatively quickly) from start to finish?

Thank you!
I gave her skin a bit of that tanned/reddish hue, I just didn't want to make it cartoonishly red.

Well there are so many ways to manipulate color in Photoshop. I usually use a combination of Levels, Selective Color and Hue/Saturation sliders. Curves is also a good way to manipulate color, but is more complicated and can be a little harder to get a grasp on. Although Ive never used it, theres also a Color Match feature in Photoshop. It might be worth messing around with.

But the real key to matching skin is just being able to recognize why the different peices dont match and what needs to be done to make them match. Whci is something that just comes from experimenting.

A single piece can take me anywhere from 10-30hrs. Finding the right stocks is a huge part of it.

Very cool pose and I love the tribal warpaint. The jewellery feels quite Barsoomian too! Is there a more authentic nude version?

No theres not unfortunally. Although I suppose i could just go into the Photoshop file and remove the layers covering her chest lol

I suppose you could but in retrospect it wouldn't be in keeping with Frazetta's portrayal of Dejah.

This is just amazing.  I love those books, one of my favorite experiences reading Princess of Mars.  Everyone should read these books.  Nearly a full century old now.

Is it me? Or am I noticing certain Boris Vallejo influence in your latest works? :)

Jeffach Featured By Owner May 4, 2015   Digital Artist
His stuff is pretty damn awesome. I was always more Frazetta influenced, but have noticed my work looks much more like Vallejo's

Yes, I've loved Vallejo's style ever since I was a kid, and his style (and obviously the genres) are similar to Frazetta's, although I think that Boris Vallejo uses more color on his illustrations (with a predominance of red and yellow shades and tones, and you seem to have developed a bit of that style as well, which is why I made that observation), Frazetta is a bit more inclined to gray-greenish shades and tones and less color, I find his style closer to that of Chris Achilleos (who is also a great artist).

Another favorite of mine is Luis Royo :)

In any case, your artworks are amazing, and despite the influences, you have developed your own style and trademark as well, which is great!

i know to spot a very well made artwork and this.. this is just another level of ability..
amazing.

i wonder though, and people may ask you this a hell lot.. but, how do you think of a picture in this huge terms of creation - for every detail in the body?
do you plan your ideas one at a time or some in parallel?
and well i know i might not get an answer for this one, but do you have some kind of license for the stock site?

cheers!

Thanks so much. The pieces evolve as Im creating them. it would be impossible to have this all planned out before hand. Usually I just come across a body/pose I like and it just slowly takes form from there. The jewelry was a lot of trial and error.
