Transitions by John DeJordy by keithdraws Transitions by John DeJordy by keithdraws
 Here is the cover for John DeJordy's "Transitions"
It's a painting of a painting in a library that includes many paintings including many of mine and some public domain classics.
John gave me the following Breif:
 "The setting is an elegant library with carved rosewood--as if the Sistine Chapel and a library crossed. The focus, though, is on a painting hanging on the wall. It is of a woman, wearing an beautiful, full-length gown as if going to a ball, and she is holding a deep-red rose. She has long, black hair and green eyes.
The portrait should have Diane sitting down, looking toward the spine of the book. Behind her, in the painting, a forest green (or some green that looks nice) tapestry with a unicorn (just enough to recognize it as such, if possible.
Diane has a slender nose and hypnotic eyes, and a wonderful smile. The smile is important. It doesn't have to show teeth, just obviously a smile. She should be wearing a corset. The library, which I assume would be mostly on the back, would be of books and scrolls."

To create the library I started with the amazing "3D Mandelbulb Ray Tracer" I made multiple renders and edited them together to create the basic structure and then went on to add lots  of details.

Inspiration can come from many places.

LOL, I'm teaching my 5 year old to paint and draw on the cintiq. Currently she's drawing pictures of what she calls "the singing robots" which is  actually the characters form the Daft  punk Movie Interstella 555. :D
