Uprising – Steampunk digital painting

posted in: Digital Art | 2

My digital art generally involves compositing multiple photos and effects to create a photo illustration. I took my latest work, Uprising a step further by completely repainting the scene.

Using source images that I photographed and scanned, I built the photo composite and then moved to the painting phase. Establishing the photo composite as a reference allowed me to work out the lighting and composition before beginning the painting.

Painting the final composite transformed my work into a more expressive, simplified piece. Although, keeping the subject simplified was a challenge, because I have a tendency to add as much detail as possible. In future paintings, I will try to break away from photo-realism and strive for loose brush strokes and implied detail with the subject.
