Bird on the Wire by Scummy Bird on the Wire by Scummy
Well not quite... this is that bird tightrope walker character again. This was an assignment on lighting. I did two different ones. The version I preferred, and the version my instructor preferred (this one). I don't have much to say about it.

(Edit: the version I preferred was actually the deviation before this [link] but apparently this one's winning the popular vote! Much thanks to the people responsible for the nomination for the DD and the DD itself)

Bird on the Wire by ~Scummy - The suggestor says "There are a lot of things I like about this pic: the composition and the colors ~Scummy used, the subtle details, not overly done with great use of lighting. Really give me a nice feeling." And I certainly agree. ( Suggested by Linay and Featured by DCZed )

I'm in awe, this is fantastic!

All in Illustrator? If so, I would absolutely love to see how your process works.

How much time did you spend on this piece?
Reply
:iconscummy:
Scummy Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Actually it's done using photoshop vectors, it's pretty much the same process as illustrator though. Maybe I'll post something on process sometime!! :)

Overall it was about twelve hours... I'm guessing?

Yes, while both are good, this is FAR more interesting compositionally, and colour wise, and it just has a really alive feel to it, which the other one doesnt.

Very charming, and a well deserved DD, congrats!

Bellissimo! I colori così contrastanti, la prospettiva, il senso di vertigine e l'irrisione della morte. Tra i preferiti!

Almost Moulin Rouge in feel, slightly Bohemian and carefree. I like how her foot isn't actually on the wire, and I like the mask as well. The lighting is impressive too - how the majority of the lighting comes from below. It makes her look ominous and happy at the same time.

I've had this in my list since you have posted it,but haven't had the chance to comment yet.

I love this piece, the skirt is genius; I'm really impressed by the translucent quality of it. It looks just like taffeta. I also love the lighting and the perspective.

Very well done.

I scanned in taffeta and played around with the layering and such to get it to look like it was the actual thing folded up. :)
