Well, it's been a long while, hasn't it... Well I am finally here, updating with something new!

"Judith" is my first personal piece in around 2 years of doing only commercial work. Working on this piece took me a lot of time: many hours were spent on thinking and composing it in my head, 40 hours of pure painting and a dozen hours for preparing the accompanying files.Painted in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos 4 medium. I used photo and live references for loose inspiration and stylization. No copying whatsoever. You can view them here: [link]

For those, who actually read the descriptions... See the "Making of" of this piece at my blog: [link]


PS. I doubt anyone would find it offensive due to stylization, but I am tagging the mature warning on due to nudity, just for case.

In the very best tradition of the classic "Odalesque" nudes of the 16th and 17th century artists! Lovely.

The effort shows, in a very good way, and that fine quality is in the painting. It reminds me of the best of 19th Century odalisques. She's very pretty, and you've done her full justice.

The background to the painting isn't quite clear, in a temporal sense. The furnishings give no clue, but is this a take on the Biblical story of Judith from the Apocrypha? Either way, it's VERY well done!

I can't even draw well, let alone paint, but this makes me wish that I had learned more.
