The featured work is one I did based off an acquaintance of mine named Theresa Fulton. A brainy blonde who actually has a degree in mathematics, physics and astronomy, is also blessed by God with outrageous good looks! I couldn’t help but want to do a work based off a photograph taken of her by Marla Verdugo (www.marlaverdugo.com).
I was really attracted to the mood and sense that was captured in her gaze; somewhat deadened but deeply intense at the same time. I started out with a basic line structure, done in Adobe Illustrator, capturing the essence of her without all the distracting background elements but just keeping the major details.
From there I pulled the vector into Adobe Photoshop where I added the background texture, text, details, and played with the coloring and alternate effects. I am truly happy with the end result as was the model! Its truly exciting when you accomplish something better than what you anticipated in creating in the first place, and well, its always nice to get a bit of recognition after hitting a few rough spots.
And for those of you who are curious, the type is a song that talks about how the wind blows through the world and how every living thing learns the providence of the universe as the wind passes by…Which is why I titled this piece “Wind’s Song”.
