I am doing an increasing number of artistic interpretations, with varying degrees of success. This is another developmental piece for various techniques I'm working on and a version of it will be used as a book cover design.
Shot in the studio (plain white wall, brown carpet tiles) the image has been rebuilt using samples taken from various parts of the figure, clothing and furniture. This is the 14th version of the picture after a total of about 12 hours but on the upside, I had more fun doing this than countless basic edits of bog- (or even sub-) standard studio shots. Meh.
As soon as it gets warmer I'll abandon the studio in favour of the great outdoors and the natural light I sooooo much prefer to all this flash nonsense lol.
Thanks for taking a look.
