The Power of PortraitStudio-Reference Generator!

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 7, 2015, 9:53 AM

To download your copy, please go to:

Its on sale for the next month, so grab your copy!

I might extend the sale a bit further because I understand students don't always have that much money to spend. I will run some more polls on the community and keep you guys involved in choosing upcoming updates and releases :)

PortraitStudio offers you full control. It revolutionizes reference development and generation, projecting a virtual equivalent of real-world access to models, studio and lighting. Control over the camera allows you to take snapshots of the models from any angles needed, the studio pin-light allows control over light intensity, angle distance and rotation along a z-axis. In-program model adjustments allows you to customize and generate a unique face for the model with each use. The adjustment sliders maximize customization detail for both a male and female model.

A randomization-tool also generates a unique face each time, and multiple save-slots seamlessly save pre-set models for future use. Dedicated sliders for texture, reflectivity and model shade are also offered in Portrait Studio. You get access to all of these features and more, as well as free monthly patch updates for new content, such as the upcoming Asaro-head style models, head rotation, complicated or simplified polygons for form studies and much more! It provides access to the world of the 3D modelling without all the modelling, bridging the gap between 2D and 3D forms of art education.

Mac users can look forward to a PortraitStudio release later in the year.

Thank you for your tutorials :) I just got Procreate and attempted digital art for the very first time. Still so much to learn! You're the best! I want to draw like you 💕

Upon encountering your video on Youtube about why my drawings suck, I wanted to give it the shot I always longed to give but could not because of being busy with other things such as school. Your points made sense but I need more detail, so I'm going to be watching more of your videos. Anyways, let this be the beginning of the solution for the "community" aspect.

Nice to meet you.

Infrequently having your youtube videos playing in background while drawing, always accompanying low music in VLC. Doubting a bit today, like "ever reaching goals..?" and your stream starting simultaneous with copy of Borderlands 2 OST. Wink/Razz Thinking computer dying, shut off VLC and *today's Critique Hour had same music. 

Never into coincidence or luck, but quite amusing and quick snapping into better feeling. Lifetime fan! :D (Big Grin)

Mm, also giving thanks for amazing resources\practical examples && articulate honesty. Not often finding both in one place/artist, let alone used together, haha.

Ahaha its a sign! I love that OST.  Thank you for your support <3

I've been feeling really down about my work lately- but as luck would have it, Youtube recommended your videos to me, and watching them has honestly helped me so much. Your words of  wisdom are super inspiring, and you have such a relateable personality that it really makes learning from you all that easier. When you talk about yourself as a young artist, I see a lot of my younger self in the stories that you tell, and it's so meaningful to me.

Thank you so much for the time and dedication you've put into your videos. You're really doing a great thing and touching the hearts of millions of artists! :)

Hi! I've just found you on YouTube - your critique and how to videos are the pure knowledge! Amazing! Thank you for each and every one of them. The first one I've watched was - Why your drawing sucks - good one! Now I know how much I have to learn :)
Also, your website is what every artist's website should look like - simple, no unnecessary content, and on every page a place when I can give you my thought, communicate with you - it really feels like you were there to listen. I would join your free critique group if I wasn't so lazy b!^$$@*% and so afraid of a failure... :)

Have a great day!

Hello, amazing gallery here. As I came across the many youtube uploads of tutorials/pointers/self-roasts/helpful advice and repaints you have done with your followers/students, I wanted to say it helped me figure out some stuff I did not see up to now. I still have a long way to go, but it was very insightful and helpful. Thank you for posting those and keep up the amazing work :)

Hello! :D 

Um..., if it's no trouble, would you mind critiquing a piece of my art? I'm working on a realism picture for a good friend of mine and it's not my first time doing realism, but it is my first time doing it on the computer. (Joy...) Plus, I've just started getting my spark for drawing back and I can tell that I'm horribly rusty...

I've watched a couple of your livestreams and you seem like you have a really good grasp on realism. I feel like I'm decent, but I could most certainly improve. If it's too much trouble I understand completely.

Thank you for taking the time to read this,

Hi there. I was wondering, is it possible to purchase Portrait Studio directly through PayPal? When I tried to purchase it through the PayPal option, it tried to make me enter a credit card, but my PayPal account is linked to my bank account.

Thank you for being bold in your videos. Some people want a little nudge in the right direction or no nudge at all. Little do they realize that most of the time, what they need is a push and a shout, a wake-up call. I can say that because of your unique teaching style, I've improved and ventured into different areas of art that I've never been in before. So you are much appreciated by me here on the interweb.
Istebrak Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
I'm so happy my videos have helped you! Thank you for appreciating my teaching style. I'm really trying to think like a student the entire time, I hope it continues to help people. Good luck with all of your work!
