First real “artistic” piece I’ve produced in sometime – still a tad rusty, nevertheless, I’m amazed at how much I actually missed it.

After an extended break (laziness) from DA, I had a brief browse over some of the current stock - and admittedly fell in love with this photo [link]

Though, as always with popular stock, it’s hard to try make it unique, as you’re “competing” in a sense with so many other talented/gifted artists. So I do hope I’ve done it some justice (if only a minuscule amount).

Well, my rambling has gone on long enough.

Many thanks to;

Beautiful collection.

:iconresurgere: :icondholms:
What more is there to say. Awe inspiring art.

Some of the few stock images i've found myself re-using over and over again. Wonderful work.

Great texture work as always, my friend. I especially like the hair and face mask blending. The Geigerish holes in her chest are maybe too circular, but it all works overall :)

Thanks :). Tend to agree with you on the holes - got to the point though where if I didn't wrap up, i'd still be working on it today lol :P.

beautiful... in fact, i think its one of your best.... good to take a break, isnt it? hehe
look forward to seeing more from you...
arkaman's avatar
Thank you :)

and indeed it is good to have a little break :P.

Spent the last two years doing the whole "graphic design" thing lol. It feels quite nice to make something for myself...after an extended break of artistic lazyness lol.

lol, yep, does take it's toll at times...aaand I still am corporate whoring - sticking it out a few more months, then off to go do the whole travel thing lol.

In the end I guess it comes down to "happy and poor", "miserable and rich", "somewhat amused and comfortable".. lol I chose the latter.

Oh well :P
