2012. Photoshop CS5 + Wacom Intuos4.
No ref used and no lineart.
Brushes and textures by me and CGTexture.
It's been a while I didn't paint something just for me, so I guess I made it because I had an art block recently. Anyway, no particular meaning, I just wanted to messing around with some brushes and textures and lights, with rough brush strokes.
I was inspired by this article (only in Italian guys, sorry!): (http://www.lescienze.it/news/2012/11/21/news/odore_bianco_olfatto_molti_componenti-1377485/) L'indefinibile aroma del bianco: it's based on a recent scientific research about the "white scent".
I hope you enjoy it!
