This one is my tribute to a photographer Horst P. Horst, who has made this origin a popular fashion photograph.
Read my current blog post for more infos about it: fantasiox.blogspot.com/2010/01…
Here´s a look on the original of the above:
Sad there is no Mixed media category that describes work done digitally and traditionally.
This one would fit in there as a digital collage, the reference was a Poser -model and the corsage (done by tolllkirsche ) is photographed and painted together digitally, then printed out and cut into pieces, which then where again put together as collage and hands on traditional for the finish and painting.
Finally the shelf and the band were added to the canvas which was then photographed and worked over in Photoshop to be reduced into duotone to get closer to the one its inspired from.
here some other parts of the broken and fixed series:

On the other hand the process from digital to traditional back to digital is by far more intriguing and gives me more possibilities of refinement than to leave things traditional.
I love the progression over the years, the shelf is brilliant.
Is there a chance we could see an "Electric Beauty" in future?
What do you mean with "electric beauty?
I promised myself years ago to work more in mixed media (digital/traditional) but I'm a lazy ass
Looks great mate! I don't know if I prefer the original colour version more but this is fantastic!
well, the colored version ran a little out of my boundaries but looks a little like early handcolored photographs -do from this point it fits again
I know how that goes with self promised things, i wanted to finish that piece earlier last year but with one mixed media piece a year its still within a possible amount for me
