Against the Night: a Gothic Fantasy Portrait

Against the Night

Surreal Gothic Fantasy Digital Artwork by Justin Gedak 2018 Model: Sonnie Marie Slagle

Based on the photography of Andy Welch

I actually started this one a long time ago, and only just finished it this morning. Sonnie is a really awesome model and photographer, and usually my favorite photos of her are actually her self portraits. Andy got some really amazing photos of her, and I used one of his this time. They’re both super talented, so if you get the chance check out their pages. Also check out Sonnie’s photography page Wonderless.

Also here's a link to Andy's original photo:

The finished artwork ended up looking a lot different than the photo, but I'm super happy with it. Would love to know what you think!

Various sizes of prints available at my Society6 shop:

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.
