The floral patterns are a continuation of the dark bodies, which I made because I wanted people to focus on the faces of the characters. Nowadays, we get distracted far too quickly by irrelevant details, like clothes, and pay far too little attention to the true character of a person. The floral body painting can be compared to a “uniqueness”, no matter if it’s a mental or physical uniqueness. I’ve worked with complementary colors because they enhance the effect of the respective colors.
Are their any innovative techniques that you have learned over the years?
I guess I can’t call it a “technique”, but I have created my own digital brushes over several months, which do not imitate real brushes but can imitate skin structures. By combining different base brushes it is possible to create almost every skin type.
