I was inspired to do with photo manipulation that merged real paint with a live model. First I found the model shot from my collection, and then traced over it using the regular pencil. Then I did another pass using acrylic paint. Finally I took the canvas and just started slopping random colors onto it, as thick as possible so that I could get the light to reflect off of it.I then lit up the canvas and took dozens of pictures of all the painted pieces. Then using Photoshop I put together the pencil drawing, the painting, and all the random acrylics streaks together to come up with the final composition. I played around with a few backgrounds, but came to like the digital look better as it brought the whole concept of real paint and digital technique together.
