Freckles Gradient Mesh by frankwyte81 Freckles Gradient Mesh by frankwyte81
Follow Me On: Facebook Youtube Twitter

Update: I created a Youtube video showing my layers one by one for this artwork. You can find it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejDQcp…

When I started this mesh, I wanted to create realistic skin textures on my gradient mesh work. I wanted to see how far I could push the mesh tool. I wanted to achieve photorealism like I had never done before. I'm happy how it turned out, but I might never push the mesh this far again without someone writing a check for the work. This gradient mesh vector was completed over a three week period. This gradient mesh was done without using the mesh tormentor.

Time: I stop counting after 100+ hours...

Illustrator CS6, gradient mesh tool, a vector hair brush, square tool, and nothing else

As a more traditional artist without the technical knowledge of Gradient mesh techniques, could you tell me, do you work over the original photo or from the original photo? This is definitely the most photo realistic piece of work I've ever seen. Brilliant!
