"Luna"
Digital painting
(prints will be 18" x 7.5")

Just finished yesterday. Worked from a nude b&w photo image for reference...entirely digital by mouse. Going to have it printed in limited edition, but I'm undecided as to whether to put it on matte photo paper or heavy wc paper...leaning toward photo paper, but I'm open to suggestions/advice.

Critique, comments, etc. welcome and appreciated. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

I saw the breasts even before seeing the planet, the moon walkers bothered me instantly until I read what was happenning.
lots of fun here.

I'd go glossy! Add to the futuristic effect.

Thanks for the comments all. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Jerry, I see what you mean...I suspected that might be the case (that the figure might be more immediately noticeable than I wanted). Any suggestions on how to further abstract the figure? What I want is for a viewer to see first and foremost a lunar landscape, and for the figure to become apparent after a little more study. Perhaps lowering the mound of the breast, or rounding down the nipple some you think?

For me, the composition works well as is... I, too, saw the female long before the planet... but, so what? It is all there... To change it would require loss of the foreshortening you have achieved - her head leaning away from us toward earth... That profile (around the head area) is more anatomical than topographical. I think this is beautiful as is! Perhaps you'd like to try another??

I know this may seem crass, but they really need to explore a little more before posting that flag. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif
Great job.

Take a look for a book called "The Worlds of Robert F Young", an sf writer. He has a story an ancient alien civilization that craved a mountain in the form of a woman. The story is about the man who climbs it.
You're picture is quite interesting. I love landscapes with little figures in them. Gives a sense of "space"!

Excellent. Very clever. You'll get more shine and light with the photo paper. You really might try the glicee print or the oil printer down your way. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Cassandra, this is great! Actually, I saw the "moon" first. Had to look again to see why you used the butt icon. So, I don't think it's too obvious at all.
