Gothic Fantasy Original Artwork by Justin Gedak


Surreal Gothic Fantasy Digital Artwork by Justin Gedak 2018 Model: Vanessa Pintea

This Portrait is based off of a photo shoot I did with a friend just recently along the trails at Heritage Park. It's been awhile since I've done a shoot, so it was fun getting back into it! She's got exotic features, a very strong, grounded sort of vibe. For sure one of my favorite models to work with.

Actually managed to finally get this one finished and framed today! I've had a pretty bad cold the past couple of days, but today's my birthday and I really wanted to get something accomplished before the day was over lol. Birthdays for me are more like backwards New Years resolutions if that makes sense; I feel better about them having something finished, and that I feel good about.

This is a one-off original, so no prints will be made. You can check out more info at my Big Cartel Shop:

Above is a little slideshow video I put together showing some of the different stages during the creation process. If anyone ever has any questions on how I go about this, feel free to send me an email at or message me on Facebook or Instagram. I love talking about the artisy fartsy stuff lol :)

Below is the original photo I used from the shoot, as well as some detail photos.

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.
