In developing a style of art that is blends both traditional + digital era techniques together, I began to create a series of celebrity portraits. These celebrity portraits are made by combining 90% digital painting, with 10% photo manipulation. I just love that I can really experiment and run free with this style without having to worry too much about technicalities.
I try to work with photos of the celebrities that I find has the most potential for a compelling, strong portrait.
I hope you enjoy my journey in developing a new style of art through these celebrity portraits.
