Aargh !!! ran out of time again !!
This image is my Xmas gift to my little sister... to be printed out on art board at 48" x 32". I had to finish this one in a hurry in order to get it to the printer tomorrow (so that it's done and printed by the 22 when everyone here in Canada leaves for the holidays).
The color palette can be a bit off on certain monitors because it's made to be printed out on paper in CMYK color range. Overall, it a bit different from my regular matte work, a lot more painterly and rough around the edges... I've made this image to commemorate my sister's wedding and her honeymoon to France. The composition is also different from what I do in my "day job"... Theses days I'm trying to push myself outside of my comfort zone. I guess this explains the strange color palette and composition.
Done in photoshop with help of XSI and my trusty digital camera... (ok it might not be a matte painting but the techniques used are similar) over about 40hrs of "on and off" work.
What do you guys think !!? Comments and crits are always welcomed :)
