PE: Old masters remastered by Herisheft PE: Old masters remastered by Herisheft
Theme: Draw somebody's character basing on one of the art masterpieces ;) So here it is... please don't try and treat that as a copy ;)

I chosoed for her "Peacock" by Kazimierz Stabrowski. I kinda have doubts that he is very well known worldwide, but here in Poland this painting is considered as one of the great masterpieces. I also wanted to promote my country's art a little, becouse we always had great artists but we could never advertise them good enough ;)
(original ---> [link] )


I know that you like Boticelli and Rembrand Mirri, but you also said that you are opened to anything else, so here, this painting always remionds me of something elvish. ;) I also heck never knw what is going on with this dress ;P

The detailing in this is completely remarkable. It reminds me quite a bit of the dress Queen Amidala wears.

This is such a beautiful picture of my character. You chose a very nice Old Master's painting for her. Very beautiful and delicate. Plus the colours fit her so well. I imagine her being invited to some exotic royalty's ball. She looks beautiful. You did a wonderful job, thank you so much!

That is an awesome idea for inspiration for an art piece. Although I think I'd be looking more at Giger or Joel Peter Witkin for inspiration. lol. A really nice blend of media, this is one of your best. The blue really works great.

Ha! Swietne - wielcy klasycy jako podstawa to wspaniala rzecz. Nie ma nic lepszego niz doskonalenie sie poprzez przerabianie dziel wielkich mistrzow lub wzorowanie na nich. Praktyka znana od wiekow, a wciaz aktualna :)

O wow, her dress is beautiful, I love the layers, the folds, the contrasts... Nice shoice of color as well, a look away, as though nonplussed and smiling at the same time. This is a really great one, Herish, you should be totally proud ^^
