Equilibrium by henning Equilibrium by henning
Iíve always been really fond of narrow standing formats, and this painting will hopefully be the first in a series of 2 or 3 with the same appearance and dimensions. I want to make a series that looks nice together, perhaps hanging on a wall.

This painting took me quite some time, and the high resolution almost made my gimpy HP lap-top melt. Please take a look at the close up details (which is also scaled down quite a bit) and the step by step process on my site: [link]

Painted from scratch in 4-6 evenings using Photoshop with a Wacom tablet. Reference used for the girl and the folds.

Original size is 2500 x 8448 pixels.

Wonderful I love the narrow style myself it seems to make the seen have a defined focus, on the subject depicted.
The coloring in the shadowed areas is beautiful not to downplay the whole image being phenomenal.
Hope so see many more.

Henning,
I opened a second dA account so I could fav images that don't fit in my "work safe" *pearwood account.
When I thought of your gallery, this was the first image that came to mind.
I wonder whether Galdriel might have ended up so beautiful, cold and deadly had she accepted the ring.
Steve

I read your interview in "Imagine FX"

I really love your art, and hope to use you tips in my own digital work.

I tend to over blur my paintings with the air brush tool as well so I hope to get out of that. :)

Thanks a lot, and remember that it's never too late to start doing anything. I started doing fantasy related art more seriously about 2 years ago. Hope you like ImagineFX, I think they've done a great job with it :-)
Cool, I see that you are using one of my girlfriends avatars? :boogie:

Imagine Fx came out just at the right time for me, at the urging of my girlfriend i bought a graphic tablet right after i bought the first copy. Ihave a long way to go but i'm having so much fun painting. ..Huge thanks to you and your girlfriend. Both your sites are great and i am learning so much from the tutorials you have both hosted there :)

Wow...this is an awesome piece, and truly deserves a DD.
that attention to detail all around, on the marble, on the fingertips, on the delicate folds of fabric,
and the soft shadows on her neck, this is an awesome piece of artistry, well done. I aspire to one
day be able to create just a smidgeon of what you have created here. :heart:
