Witchcraft by Felideus Witchcraft by Felideus
Hi there,
This is my first tryout using Painter X, and I'm very proud of the result. I realy love the organic feel of painting with this program, almost like real painting. I'm so happy that I've decided to change my usual "clean-airbrush" style on Photoshop and keep working with Painter.
The inspiration of the piece is the art of Mucha, Klimt, Dave McKean, the traditional indian paints... I´ve used my girlfriend as a reference in order to achieve information about lights, shadows and the pose, but it's not a portrait of her, all the jewelery, the cloths and the proportions of the face and the body are from my immagination.
Done in Painter X (the black and white acrylics I've usead as a base of the painting) and Photoshop CS3 (the color and the texture strokes), with a Wacom Cintiq 12WX, I've used the acrylics in Painter and some brushes from "Yan Xuenguo's good brush set" in Photoshop, no photo, or photo-texture used. I'll post an image explaining the complete process in the comments.
I hope you like it, and I really like to know your comments and critics of my new style.

Thanks ;)

PS: Sorry for my awful english, I'm keep working on it ;)

I saw this posted on Pinterest, and it completely captured me. The pose, the composition of the whole piece, just conveys this strength in one visual punch. I love it!

This absolutely gorgeous! You can feel her power and authority, and also that she takes zero shit. :D (Big Grin)  She feels like a fierce, stern Mother Goddess. Amazing work! Clap

Lovely. I would never have guessed that it was computer made. It has lovely soft shading, and the muted lighting is very authentic. Where are you from, if I may ask?

This is some wonderful work! Like a golden mixture of traditional indian art and Klimt in his best mood. It's great how you worked ot a pose that's at the same time elegant and stiff - like the frozen dance movements of indian gods. Her fierce expression catches the eye of the viewer and leads his gaze to the intricate headdress and earrings (by the way: you did those from imagination? Wow!). This is one of the best works I've seen in a few weeks here. :)
