"...the escape from gravity is the last and most diffcult of all the
disquisitions to be a modern angel, one has to deny all physics for at
least a few seconds out of the mind..."
Inspired by some modern Masters such as *pascalblanche and Michael Parkes and a tribute to some classical like Dalí and Leonardo, this piece took me one whole week on and off!
If i had to do exam again with a digital painting, this would it be, let alone for the work and process involved!
After an initial sketch, the composite was done with some rough poser figures and a texture for the stone and background, the mechanical wings where done using NSP-clay mixed with findings and overpainting them with physical airbrush , photographed and incorporated into the painting.
The lighting and anatomy was a kind of experiment here, but think i have managed it to look believable though the stylized look on the face and poses are intended to look not too realistic. The composition was a very brave experiment itself and inspired mostly by Parkes works, since there is a golden point and a directional curve with the circular shapes that one can find wheb taking a closer look.
It might not be the last piece in that direction, but i love to mix styles together, to come up with a new one, and after taking a look at the rest of my gallery here, it fits...
