WOW! Finally i have ended this picture. It has been a lot of work but, the results are ok for me.So this will be my last picture of 2009. A portrait of Nixie Pixel, a girl that is knowed by her videos on youtube about linux and games (and also weird things XD). She is a cute girl that has a lot of energy explaining things. And also a sexy voice (just joking) this is part of my tribute to Girls that are capturing my attention for something special. Who will be the next one?

If you want to know her better you can do it visiting her youtube channel . Funny, hilaryious, and very special and unique style.

Technical Info:
This picture was made with freeSoftware: Gimp 2.6.7 + GPS (gimp paint studio) and lot of work. The idea was to make a portrait of a beautiful girl with good lighting and strong color scheme. I wanted to make this one for my Portfolio.So the final result must to be ok to be presented to a client showing good technique and not hyperrealism but a real portrait.

Now is finished and i´ve made a video, just a little video showing the final retouching stage. But i think it would be cool for other people to share that moment. Not a timelapse .that will be too large.
But 5 min of my painting process

And also i´ve upload a making of to show people the paint steps. I hope this will be helpful for somebody or at least enjoy it.

GPS is a collection of brushes and accompanying tool presets intended to speed up repetitive tasks by avoiding the need to manually reset tool options after each change. Tool presets are a simply saved tool options, a seldom discussed but highly useful feature of the GIMP.

The goal of GPS is to provide an adequate working environment for graphic designers and artists to begin to paint and feel comfortable with GIMP from their first use. Later the user will change these settings based on his own workflow preferences and understanding of GIMP.
