Shine: A Surreal Gothic Portrait

Surreal Gothic Artwork by Justin Gedak

I've decided to do something a little different with this one. I'm giving away the full resolution 8000 x 10000 pixel digital painting as a free download for anyone who wants it. Don't need to sign up for anything or anything like that, just an easy download from my Dropbox. Click the link below to download it, just keep in mind that because the file is so large you might not be able to view it properly on a phone or tablet. Feel free to print out as many as you like.

Would love to hear what you think!

Also, here's a little slideshow video I put together showing my working process, and the different layers and stages for creating the artwork. I do about 90 percent of the work in Corel Painter using a Wacom drawing tablet, and I use Adobe Photoshop--in between, and at the end of the painting stages--to tweak shapes and lighting. I'll usually paint on few hundred layers of digital paint, but for the slideshow I combined some of the layers down into a little over a hundred different layers.

I've also put together a folder of all the 1080p images from the slideshow in case anyone wants to take a closer look at the different stages.
