The disquisition by fantasio The disquisition by fantasio
"...the escape from gravity is the last and most diffcult of all the disquisitions to be a modern angel, one has to deny all physics for at least a few seconds out of the mind..."
the apprentice

Sad that there is no "mixed media->surreal" gallery..
because the process here is as most of my pieces hard to specify, but overall "painting" fits as an essential part.

Inspired by some modern Masters like ~pascalblanche and Michael Parkes and a tribute to some classical, this piece took me one whole week on and off!
If i had to do exam again with a digital painting, this would it be, let alone for the work and process involved!

The lighting and anatomy was a kind of experiment here, but think i have managed it to look believable. If one takes a while looking on it, its possible to think that its like a castle in the sky with open ceiling(like also the left lower corner is suggesting)

it might not be the last piece in that direction, but i love to mix styles together, to come up with a shiny new one, and after taking a look at the rest of my gallery here, it fits...
Characters created with help from poser /daz studio, attachment with nsp -clay and some stocks from my own.
only the background painting is based upon a stock from: ~fadingmemories-stock
