The truth is in the dirt by erinapplebee

I've been really inspired by angels lately and antique paintings so I wanted to emulate that in this image. I wanted my character to be unidentifiable but there to be an elegance to her to I used an image that had softness in posing and with soft fabrics.

I really like how the textures create a background that emulates that of antique studio photography and the lighting while dark makes my character the focal point in this image. I love the vulnerability that she has and sadness about her, which I feel could be interpreted in different ways. But I'll leave that up to you.

If your interested in seeing how I created this image please view the video below or check out my Youtube Channel to see more.

If these wings could fly by erinapplebee


I thought you might like to see how I create my work so I wanted to share with you some of my speededit videos, the first being 'If these wings could fly.' To see more of my videos please check out my youtube channel or blog.

I was really inspired by traditional paintings or a painterly style for this image, I was really inspired by the style in which old paintings were painted and I really wanted to emulate this in ‘If these wings could fly.’

I am really happy with this piece and the way it came out, I felt that I was able to emulate the style in which I wanted to achieve while adding a contemporary element.

I used mostly my own stock for this image including texture overlays with the exception of the water droplets and the wings. You can find my beach stock images and textures via the stock and textures folders in my gallery.




If your interested in buying prints of this work please find them via my Society6 store.
