A Midsummer Night's Dream [Apr. 7th, 2008|02:51 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry
This week, for our fashion illustration class, Sam Weber wanted us to illustrate a poster for a Shakespeare play of our choosing.  I picked A Midsummer Night's Dream because of the interesting imagery throughout the play.  This started out as an acrylic and pastel painting on Rives BFK, and I took it into photoshop to finish it off.  Original size is 16 x 24".

Wow, Sam Weber, gotta say, bit jealous...
Just curious about something, why are the eyes blank? It reminds me of how Modigliani never put any detail into his eyes. Doing something with Shakespeare sounds really nice, I like how it turned out

thanks :)
I didn't quite make her eyes completely blank. They have a hint of the pupils and iris in them, they're just milked over. Just my way of making her seem even more ethereal and fairy-queen like, and less human.

The eyes really turned out well, do you first paint normal eyes and then give it the milky glaze or do you really work with the milky glaze? Your albino paintings gave me the idea to make a white self-portrait. Well several kinds of whites with a blueish or pink hue on a brownish background, not really sure when i'll do it, but if it turns out well, i'll give you the link.

Again great job...

Jeremy - If you ever sell prints of this one let me know. I have a serious art-crush on this piece.
As a judge at the Society , I will say this-It was hard NOT to give Francis and you tons of awards. You impressed us all.
