In the Rose Garden: A Gothic Fantasy Portrait

In the Rose Garden

 

Digital Painting and Photo Manipulation of a Medieval Gothic Fantasy Warrior by Justin Gedak 2015

 

Golden words locked behind Crimson secrets
Wild and unfound, and hidden in the shadows
A light in the past, holding true

 

An unbroken promise to make it last

 

To see it through

 

To find a way

 

She waits in furthest corners of the unknown
Ready to give up, but endeavoring just the same

 

Quiet agony

 

Silent torments

 

The light in the past holds true
Burning with despair

 

Tortured hope

 

Yet stronger every day

 

 

This Gothic fantasy portrait was created with a combination of digital painting and photo manipulation using Corel Painter, Adobe Photoshop, and a Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet. I digitally painted on literally hundreds of layers to get that "scratchy effect using a self taught technique. 

 

Based on the photography of Marali Sadykhov

 

 

 

A hand embellished special edition mounted to an art board and

custom framed is available at Big Cartel

 

 

Open Edition prints and merchandise are available at the following

online galleries and print shops 

 

 

For anyone wanting to sign up to my mailing list, I'm giving away a free full resolution digital download of "Born for Battle". It's a very large image, 9000 x 6750 300dpi, and I figured it would be interesting for people to be able to zoom right in to see the details and brushwork. Also, anyone with access to a good printer can print off their own print of it without having to order anything online.
