Girl In Blue

It’s been ages since I’ve created a piece of art for my myself. The joy of being able to allow the creation process to go in whatever direction it wants to take, not knowing what the end result will be is a very pleasant process. It is one of the most enjoyable things to do.

Between teaching and working on art for another children’s book. Always so busy that I rarely get time to just immerse myself into free form digital art. This piece took about 100 hours to complete. It is a combination of compositing and painting in Photoshop.

    Splendid work. Beautiful girl, including her dress. Beautiful birds and plants, and good composition.

    Thanks for doing this.

      Hi Martin,

      Thanks for your kind reply. Making the dress was the thing that took the longest, many hours of work – beginning with some sample pieces of folded fabric then piecing them together in the shape of a dress, then using digital painting to create ruffles and folds. After that, doing the hair also took a very long time, first piecing some hair samples, then painstakingly painting each individual hair overtop to shape them into a hairstyle. My wrist was aching at the end of the day.
