Belly Dancer by echo-x Belly Dancer by echo-x
This was a private commission of a Burlesque Belly Dancer. I'm very happy with it.

MODEL: (withheld)
PLATFORM: PC and Mac
TOOLS: Two Wacom tablets (Cintiq 21UX and Intuos 4)
PROGRAM: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
EFFECTS: I don't use any 'effects'. In Illustrator I use simple strokes and Brush strokes, gradients and gradient meshes, and many many objects with varying transparency settings. In Photoshop I paint, often using the semi-transparent settings and glaze in the traditional neo-classic technique.

I didn't intend on it - but I think it makes a great pairing with Bubo v2.0.

This is exquisite. I especially love the detailing in the feathers, peacock, and her outfit. Lovely!

This looks like one expensive commission! And I mean that in a really good way!

Depends on what you consider expensive. I've had larger projects - but this one did come out very.... rich.

I admire your ability to make women look both real and sensual/sensuous instead of overly idealized like so many artists do.
