Artwork Description

A story illustration I chose to do both because I really needed the exercise in perspective and because I love the atmosphere of dimly lit, dusty rooms full of old things and vellum. Drawn on paper, scanned and painted in Photoshop.

It's lovely! And I know it's sort of pretentious to say it but it's kinda like a vermeer but if vermeer had a more cartoony style...

I like your sight a lot, I always knew you were talented but I never knew the extent. I hope you keep adding to the site.

Oh.God. Your eye for detail is eye-watering! It's so, so good! I especially love the guy's expression though! Just by it you can tell what the situation is.

Stunning! What an idea for a story! What an interior! I also like the characters' expressions, and as everyone else has said, way to go on the detail, atmosphere and colour!

Holy smokes! What detail! you must have worked tremendously hard on this! Or least I would have. CHRIS PICK!

Good job on the ambience, you have resisted using strong lighting yet still managed to avoid the de-saturated look. The limited colour palette tops it off - very good.

Tracy, your eye for detail is superb! Great work!

Guest's picture

Very detailfull work indeed !
But speaking about perspective the book lines do not work with the door ones as if the table was not orthogonal to the wall, am I right ?
PS : amazing expressions you've done ! Speaks to me so much ... ^_^
