Waiting for Tonight by minix Waiting for Tonight by minix
The ever-beautiful Jennifer Lopez.

Painted at the request of Catinha, who is equally lovely. When she showed me the original photograph, I fell in love with the lighting and couldn't resist reproducing it in photoshop.

*update*

Daily Deviation

Given 2002-05-08
It took me a while to really believe that this wasn't just a photo manip. Waiting for Tonight by minix is unbelievable and the progress shots prove its credibility. Can you believe how realistic it is? Just zoom in on the detail around the lamp, it's absurd! (Selected by $matteo) ( Featured by matteo )

Your interpretations are such an add-on to celebrities personality. As if they'd get what they are lacking in reality;) and thus became Gods;).

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. feature :winner:! congrats!
Today's theme was titled "Antique Devs". I hope to draw new audience and attention to the deviations of past :)
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure (and ALSO, to show off people who I think are undeniably talented in their own genre of art, REGARDLESS of their #'s of fav's or pageviews. I like what I like and sometimes artwork isn't featured in the regular DDs because of sheer numbers. It's a shame, but the admins are only trying to be fair ). Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists. If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! xoxo Sandi :heart:

Its gorgeous.

I think the shoulder could have done being a little bigger, but that´s nothing that disturbs the image at all. Also, there is quite the amount of shadow there and they can play mind-tricks. ;)

Very impressed by this, glad i stumbled on to it. The recreation of the face and the lamps are extraordinary.

can't believe i haven't commented on this. ;x

it's excellent work. complete photo quality. i really don't have anything to constructive crit about. but i will say this: your progress shots have certainly shown me a little bit of how you work. particularly helpful was the sketch in which you blocked out areas of highlights and shadows. i should do that ;\

i imagine it was quite disheartening for you to see all these negative comments. i have seen some work of late that seemed dubious in origin and screenshots of progress work haven't done much to convince me either.

this however, is a totally different kettle of fish. you've certainly captured the romance of the pose in the original photo. see, this is why your work inspires me.

and now i am off to paint ;D

I always find great stuff late, it's been a while since anyone has commented, but I just have to. I thought this was just a photograph when I first saw it. Amazing detail. That lamp in front, that's great, all of it is. Wow wow wow.
