This painting serves the purpose of telling a story, leading the viewer into a far away land yet leaving one with a sense of excitement and awe. The character depicted is sporting a retro inspired scifi suit, in a storm of battle I can’t help but wonder if he will survive.
My painting was created in Adobe Photoshop. Using the mixer brush I can replicate the effect of oil painting. The edges of each brush stroke blend together and create the illusion of wet on wet paint. Photographs were taken for reference and a lot of imagination was used too!
