Green_not a photo_ by katanimate Green_not a photo_ by katanimate
This is not a photo, it is a digital painting.

Just practicing photo realism, but I got bored, so I just slapped a texture onto the background and called it finished ^^ You may download the full size image to see the brush strokes.

Used this lovely stock photo as reference:


Adobe Photoshop and Wacom Bamboo tablet

I may have thought it was a photo if it wasn't for the artificial blur ;). And of course the background. Still, nicely done.

Wait, you did this from scratch, right?
No adding paint texture to a picture?

I painted it while looking at this stock photo: [link]
The background is just a texture, but the wolf was hand painted from scratch (digitally).
