I would like to present you my latest artwork -
Greetings, dear freinds and followers!
|A lot of time had passed since 2002 so obviously only the main tree-lady idea stayed untouched in the end.|
|Finding a suitable place for this shoot, that's not too far away from my place and yet calm enough was a pretty big challenge...|
|but I was pretty happy with this cute tree I found, so after the shooting it was time to get to some artistic retouch.|
|We could affort to to a nude shooting in a public garden, so after everything was done and I set the main brightness levels a serious skin retouch to remove completely the undesired bra and tights.|
|After hours of retouching these details I was albe to get to the real art part, where I added a picture of another tree's roots to the main shot and blend it with the legs.|
|Adding some "nature" colours over her skin and more background blending to fit it all, was a neccessary step in the right direction.|
|After I was pretty happy with the overall composition it was time to set some colours at place and add some more details and curves to the roots.|
|And I was ready to start the tree crown of hands-branches that was supposed to give this important touch that I was after from the very start.|
|Adding some sharpness to the main details and some "nature" colour to the supplementary hands marked the final line of this piece of art.|
Epilogue:This magical dream took me an average of 19 hours of retouching and drawing by hand until I reached the desired final result.
