(((- WARNING THIS IMAGE CONTAINS VISIBLE BRUSH STOKES!!!!! -)))

just thought a warning was needed, because i know a lot of people complain when an image isnt smudged and blended pixel by pixel:o

since this is going to be a CD cover i made the bright red umbrella the central focus. i was walking around HMV yesterday looking at all the CDs on the shelves and none of them particularly jumped out at me, so i aimed to create something that would catch peoples eye:)
again this is part of the series that ive been contracted to work on, and all images will relate to my original Silent Silhouette piece i did a while back.

i created this more or less entirely in Painter 9 using the "artists Oils" tools along with some colour retouching in Photoshop 7, its taken around 15 hours im guessing.

ive really enjoyed working like this, going crazy with details etc would not have improved the image at all, infact it would have taken a lot of the life out of it.

expect more work in this sort of style:)

Take that sunlight!

These reds are gorgeous. And I don't mean that it is better than the sun, but the sun compliments the red in the umbrella-lella.

This and the painting of the person's eyes under an umbrella are my two favorites of your collection. I love the contrasting colors you use to bring the pictures to life. You are simply a genius. Thanks for sharing your art.

People complain when they can see the brush strokes?
'O.o!
Screw them, they give the picture character, make it interesting.

This is beautiful by the way.

If anything, I like it better when there are visible brushstrokes in a painting, the rougher the better, I'm an oddball. Very captivating, bright, ferocious, and emotional.

shit man. This lighting and hte bright red color of the umbrella looks so. awesome SDKJFd. I am amazed by your work, man :/ I like the how one of hte rips exposes her eye (: nice shadow and sky, too.

"just thought a warning was needed, because i know a lot of people complain when an image isnt smudged and blended pixel by pixel:o"

oh gosh, seriously? Personally I like textured work more than smooth work. It just looks so much more real and interesting to look at.
