The Wedding Gift


.:The Wedding Gift:.

Congratulations to my friend and her new hubby. I made this piece which took two months to complete. When i say its gonna be beautiful i meant it. Something special had to be offered as a gift and i knew i was well kinda broke but i wanted to do something better for my childhood friend. It was a pleasure to make this and such an honor. I may not be able to show a lot of my emotions but i can show through what i make. And to be honest, the two deserved a special piece of art 33 inched wide and 50 inches height. Oh boy i went big for this. Nothing but the best for my childhood friend.

I tried my best with the skills i currently have to create a piece to mimic stained glass art and incorporate into the piece. Each character i had to design based on the images they gave me as a reference. It was difficult trying to get the proportions right but i had been getting advice and critiques from those who made art and those that dont so i can get as much feed back as possible. yes models to pose helps a lot as guides. I take pride in this, it meant something. It deserved my full attention. Each character was done separately. Yes separately. Used texture images, my shading techniques, my knowledge on layer effects which got way too technical having multiple layers and masking layers.

I understand people will say, well you gotta work faster. and yes understandable counter point, I do have a job and i do work at another when i do get called in. Also i used all the skills i learned in Photoshop about layer effects to a teeth. All done in clip studio paint. Layer effects in most cases is technical and if a layer is in the wrong place can alter an image and make it different.

Over all, they loved the gift. Even designed passport covers for them too.
