Damien's Kiss by cypherx Damien's Kiss by cypherx
...but who could resist
when given a kiss
by the infamous Damien Thorn

Now on Facebook: [link]

Signed prints are avail upon request - must have paypal & I'll make you etsy listing.

apologize for the ridiculousness and unfortunate necessity of the watermarking frenzy but I've modified the image in 2012 and wanted people to be able to enjoy a closer look without the DA watermark (which I wish I could position and modify opacity on). prints don't have watermarks though :)

There was more to the rhyme, but it was superfluous. This is a combo painting and photo manip. The characters are mine, but a lot of photos were added to the background & foreground during the painting process. I worked on this in photoshop and then painter for brushstrokes. I must have spent 40-60 hours on this, the bench alone took me 3-4. I never thought anything could be more difficult to paint than striped stockings, and I was wrong.

my personal stock used:

Why a summer/spring painting in winter? Because first love reminds me of the summer & early fall. It's where it'll always be held for me.

I'm interested in a print! I've always loved this photo and there was even a period of time where I was looking for this all over the internet and Deviantart and I couldn't find it. Once I found it again I was super stoked. Honestly, this is one of my favorite pieces of artwork. The lighting and mood are perfect contrasts with each other. It's sweet and the colors and really vibrant and dreamy. And the concept is probably my favorite thing about it. 
I do have a paypal account!

If you don't mind my asking... WHEN did Damien Thorn dress like that in the Omen Movies, exactly?
AtlantaTheAristocrat Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Good God, a fan prude. Listen, obviously this artist wants to portay this character that you are so uptight about in a different verison. There's nothing wrong with that.
