Anna In Color

I made this portrait simply because I wanted a new piece to put in my living room. :) The room itself is tan, blue and green so these colors came out just right for the spot I have picked out.

As for the style and technique, a friend had recently asked me what my main influence is when it comes to artistic styles and, like many others, he was expecting to hear fantasy or sci-fi but it in reality, classical art (Michelangelo / Da Vinchi) is what influences me the most. So every now and then i like to work on an image that may have fit in with something from the classical era but still make a subtle effort to add a modern, digital twist to it.
I also kept in mind what i learned on my last piece (AmalgaMATE 5) that avoiding the color black helps the image look soft and realistic.

I used stock again, breaking my own rules, but this was a great image to work off of...

It reminds me of what could possibly be my favorite photograph ever that i have loved for years...

It has the same bend to the neck and wrap around feel to the head. I love that!

I really truely love this, in fact it practically jumped out at me as soon as I opened your gallery. I know you cannot take credit for the pose, but the color choices and the idea of taking away the component that SCREAMED 'swan' were brilliant. I'm tempted to use her image myself, especially with this kind of inpiration to drag along with me. Well done!

This is just one of the best picture that I've seen! the colors are unusual but pleasant, not agressive to create this contrast... Perfect. The original picture is taken to an higher level ;)
