Kuroi's portrait (Speed Painting) by ChristinZakh Kuroi's portrait (Speed Painting) by ChristinZakh
CHECK THIS LINK OUT FOR THE SPEED PAINTING VIDEO OF THIS PIECE: [link]

The Book of Contradictions is the graphic novel of mine. It going to start on 1/03/13. Follow the link and add it to your favorites in order not to miss the beginning!

This time I tried to do the painting not that sketchy as the previous one, for you to see how do I work with skin and hair. It's not really a tutorial. I guess I have to make smth very slow and very specific. Just hair or just skin probably. But this way I won't upload the tutorial work itself here on DA. So subscribe for my YouTube channel, not to miss the whole party. ;)

Whats for the font, The Book of Contradictions - is my name of my book trilogy. I was working on the font for a big piece that I'm going to upload very soon. But as the font is already done, I've decided to label this picture with it. ^_^

This is absolutely incredible. His face is so wonderful, especially the eyes, and the lighting and colours are incredible. And that font is ridiculously awesome!

Ok, I feel like one traditional comment won't really work here so yeah.

There are pretty much no words that can describe how much I love:

1. This one piece.
It gives away a wonderful feel of serenity, and still it looks moving. The emotion of the character seems like something between.... suspicion and perhaps, slight amusement, I think? In any case, it's just wonderfully done, with a lot of skill, and emotion put into it, it's a real gripping piece even though there isn't much shown. And for some reason I no longer want to bite someone

2. Kuroi himself.
Even though I don't really know much about his personality, he looks stunning, and I like the fact he does not really fit into the modern society's standards for "BEAUTY" which are horrible, but there's always symmetry and emotion in every single painting of him you make, and that gives him the inner beauty not many characters actually have.

3. Your art.
What to say? Stunningly brilliant, perfect anatomy, really, REALLY strong emotion and it's extremely eye catching. Perfectly realistic, and yet far enough from photorealism/hyper realism to be unable to have artists's unique touch and style and feeling into it.

4. You.
Yes, you. You are one of the most stunning and skilled alive artists I have ever seen, and still not an airhead about it at all like most of them are. I really, really enjoy it every time you pop up in my inbox because I know I will be blown away - and if I say that in the comments, I won't be struck with one of the two versions of "Ho ho, I am better than you, mortals". I am really glad I found out about you, and sometimes I don't dare comment because I just... don't know what to say, to be honest. I'd love to read your books, though I'm not quite sure I can afford them.

And last but not least
5. The music you used in the speedpaint :XD: Yeah that one was random but I really loved it :)

Oh, my Lord… man… :') This is more likely the the most touching comment I've been ever given. It moved me, made me smile, and when finished reading I was happy. :))) So now I don't know what to say… I'm speechless. What did you do to me? :D

But seriously, thank you so much. Every word of yours is so important for me, especially the words, especially ones about my character… ^_^

What's for the book, it's written in Russian. I'm translating it know, and when I'm done, I'm going to upload it here for free. I want to share my story with all of you. May be I'll ask for some fee for the next part of it (hahaha >:D), but it most definitely won't be terrible. :D

What's for the music… it's one of my favorites ever. When I was in Toronto this summer I was just lying on the grass in the garden once and was listening to it again and again, while looking at the black night sky full of sparkling stars. ^_^ That was amazing.

I'm glad I made you happy, butbutbut I was just honest that's all! XD

You are most welcome :) And what? It's true :)

Awww, I am looking forward to it! I'm sure I won't be disapointed at all! if the fanart can be fee then I'm in xD

Awww, well that's wonderful! I can't seem to find music to cause that enchanted feel, maybe just because I don't listen to the right music xD

I remember looking at one of your other pieces and liking them. When I saw this I wondered if it was the same artist, and too my surprise, yes! I recognized the style and the character.
I suppose two times is the charm (forget 3) and it's about time I watched you.
