Classy Cabbage Fairy by AngelaSasser Classy Cabbage Fairy by AngelaSasser
For lack of a better title! This was a 'quick' exercise I did tonight inspired by the latest video by FZD School of Design encouraging artists to think creatively by taking random shapes in photos and creating a scene or character from them. She's still due for some touching up, but I wanted to share this anyways!

The original photo by ~raincitygirl98 I used for inspiration was chosen at random from the Photography category. I instantly saw ruffles in the layered leaves (but also an underwater scene with kelp). Ruffles and classy cabbage won out!

This was also great digital practice for me. Painted entirely in Photoshop CS2 with the photo base for the skirt and collar.

haha thanks! I'm working on that digital thing as we speak. Trying to do more exercises so I feel more confident with it, and therefore, produce more work in this medium. I have to say this one was a learning experience and a confidence boost. A painting in a night?? She may still need refining, but I'm happy with that kind of progress!

At least you can do it LD :)! It takes me nearly forever to finish anything in Photoshop. I need to do more of it, too. I like your traditional work too, but your digital gives me the drive to work hard!
