Digital Art 2018 By Justin Gedak
A quiet state of mind
tortured but unafraid.
She walks at night
through the terror, and past the shadows.
Led by starlight.
Searching for a place to call before
a fractured memory of what might have been.
A graveyard in her wake.
The dead fall like flies.
Nothing will stand in her way.
I used a stock photo by Malleni-Stock from Deviantart as reference. You can check out the photo that I used here:
There’s something really fun about hunting for stock photos. There’s thousands of them on Deviantart, and I find it really interesting sifting through them.
I created this gothic portrait using a combination of digital painting and photo manipulation with a Wacom Intuos Pro Tablet. I used mainly Corel Painter for the digital painting, and Photoshop for touch-ups and color corrections.
Open Edition prints are available at Society6, Curioos, and Inprnt.
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.
