I thought this was a photograph until I made it my desktop background. Good job! :)
This is a really clever piece. Everything just blends in together so smoothly.
Thanks! That was definitely what I was practicing while keeping it minimal and emotional.
So this... isn't a photo? City light photo on a photo of the sea, with the character painted on it? Mountain photo in background? Or sea photo overlapping photo of mountain? Or are those normal clouds/some other texture? The character's digital... right? Hair looks painted, but everything else is so real... I can't seem to tell which pieces this is all put together of, really cool, would be interesting to know how it was made/what is really what! Nice work.
I'm glad you're asking all those questions about the technique because that's what I was hoping this would evoke. All of the photos are ones I took with the intent of blending together in this way. I tried to be more meticulous with the manipulation without going overboard and making it look obviously fake. I wanted people to not be sure what's real and whats painted. The sky is a crusty wall texture I used to give the image some age and grit. The figure is the most painted but mostly because I wanted it to match the environment more in terms of values and colors. And lastly the bokeh lights in the back are slightly manipulated to match the surreal nature of the image.
nice mixed media piece!
did you take the photos yourself?
the two images blend in really weill
Yeah I took all the photos. thanks!
So this got turned into a background huh? Well I don't mind looking at waves since they happen to relax the christ out of me.
