Wedding Dance on the Beach by ~Zhaana is "full of poetry and sweetness. The artist respected all the things of the original creation and she made a great work," says the suggester.

Wedding Dance on the Beach


Badge Awards


Yeah at last a new piece by me !
I'm so thrilled to submit it, it has been a long time since I posted something here :excited:

Done this for my cousin wedding as participation for the menu of their bluray wedding movie, a special gift from my brother ~ZonWernor. (He did the shooting, direction, post-production of their wedding movie, and I did this illustration for both the cover and menu of the blu-ray). ^^; Yep we're a regular family lol

So let's talk about this piece, the original painting was done by Jack Vettriano and it's called The Singing Butler. (you can google it).
My cousin got a reproduction at their wedding as a gift, they're good dancers and her wife is an art teacher !

So I had not idea what to do for the cover and the menu, then got the idea to replace the couple in the picture with my cousins dancing at their wedding, and replace the two people with two Bretons in their dancing costumes ;) (we're all bretons.)
Oh and if you compare the two pieces, you'll see I extended the right size, that was intended for the Blu-ray menu.

About technic part :
It's a 100% vector piece done in Illustrator CS5, I used my beloved pen tool on people, gradients, then for the sand, sky I used the art brushes with an opacity from 80% to 30%.
