This piece was created for my younger brother’s 21st birthday. Following a photo-shoot of him I used photoshop to create a rough idea of what I wanted to create. I then hand scaled the image to 3 times the size and painted it using a combination of watercolours and metallic acrylics. I had this professionally framed to finish it off.
The original image is copyrighted to Boris Vallejo. I drew and painted this when I was 16 years of age. The drawing/painting was created using a reference from the book ‘Mirage by Boris Vallejo‘. The book image was A4 in size, I drew this onto an A2 stretched piece of Cartridge paper. I then re-drew it on another A2 stretched board and painted using a combination of watercolours and metallic acrylics.
The model in this image is Joshua Turner-Bruce. A very talented model and free runner. The photograph who shot him is RB Photography. I used 3 different images to create the finished piece.
I was invited to take part in a fantasy photoshoot. The photographer was Tania Jaye Ward and the makeup artist was Emma Carvell. This was a really fun photoshoot to be involved in as I had no idea of the hair/make up or outfit. I was not allowed to see a mirror until the final look had been achieved. Following on from the photoshoot I created this piece of digital art combining images of caves and rock formations.
