Title: Phantom Limb
Assignment: Assignment #1
Medium/Tools: Wacom tablet, Gimp, textures (here and here)
Warnings: Nudity.
Notes: A few weeks ago, I was driving home through the mountains just as the sun was setting. That's my favorite time of day, because I love the way the tree limbs become so perfectly silhouetted against the sky in the fading light. On this particular evening, my iPod shuffled up "Starshine" by Gorillaz, and it fit my mood and the scenery so thoroughly that I wound up listening to it on repeat for the rest of the drive. I can't say that I definitely captured my mood that night with this piece, but it was the starting point for my inspiration-- and honestly, I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out!

Oohh I really like the see-thru quality you gave the figure! The only thing I would suggest to enhance that is to make the black outlines just a shade lighter, but I really like the stark contrast the rocky silhouette at the bottom offers, so it definitely works! The way you used the textures is really beautiful, I love that point in the evening where the stars and sun are slowly changing places. You really captured that feeling! <3

I like how we had similar themes for our pieces! Isn't that interesting? :P
