Shaman by rafa-insane Shaman by rafa-insane
I painted this primarily for the "Barbaria" group show, with the intention of "breaking" the paradigm of the space with a digitally created painting. /// Spoiler: a LOT of contemporary artists are using digital in a variety of forms, so the gallery curator thought it was actually cool to bring this on. Will discuss the avantgarde value of digital paintings on galleries soon... it's a really fascinating subject, and the thing it's already taking over. /// I actually fixed some things I didn't enjoyed and didn't had time to paint, at the time (and rush) of the exhibition, so this might be a "definitive" version, if you will, from the gallery version. Anyway, it's my first "fine arts" digital piece ever.

About this - it's an exploration of a mythology I'm developing, it will start taking form in the coming months/years. No reason to rush it, it's just a personal thing, and I'm truly enjoying the journey. Especially now.

"Shaman", digital painting / 43 X 34 cm ~ around 17 X 13 inches.
Prints wil be available pretty soon.

Now, time to move on to the next.
~Abraço~

COol Portrait! I love the detail in her hands and the way you made the red and green hue's set the mood and tone of the work. Very Nice!

Sorry, but for free? No way. These takes time and money to be created, so I can't just let you use them without a fee.
If you're still interested, send me a private message, ok?
All the best!

it looks good.. but the thumb. way too short, it doesn't look like it's being shorted because of the angle, just physically short.
and i think that the skin on the hands look much older then the skin on the face, i'd or age the face or younger the hands.
besides, i love love love it.

Awesome dude! Did you have to print it onto a huge canvas for the show or was a framed print enough?

Really want to get into the fine arts scene and participate in group shows, seems like a lot of fun. :D
