Bring it to life

Author Comments

With this piece I wanted to show that digital art can bring traditional art to life. She (done traditionally) is holding her heart which glows from the life given to it by digital art and which flows through and around her.

I inked the sketch and colored it with Copic markers. The foto I took was then edited digitally with Krita to give it the glowing look.

My work in progress:


Woha! I don't know why, but you really got me with this one. I love your traditional style, her expression and your use of colours :)

I think, if you use some rim lighting, it would help her to pop out and really support your concept. Maybe you could focus a little bit more on her eyes - maybe a little bit of white in the center, wich blends with the yellow...
The same thing you can do on parts of the "tentacles" which a closer to the viewer. I think it would give them a great three dimensional effect and would look really cool.

Hope my feedback is useful and you haven't to big problems to decrypt my terrible english^^
Keep up the great work - want to see you at least being showcased :)

Thank you very much! :) I think your english is very good but english isn't my first language so what do I know :D Yeah, maybe I'll add some white to the eyes, to let them shine a bit more. :)

Woah! this is amazing! I love the colors and shading in this, and i love how you enhanced the traditional artwork! I hope Jazza likes this as much as I do! Good luck! ^^

Thank you very much! :)

I love your use of color in this, I always hate altering any of my traditional pieces, but this enhances it! Wonderful job!
