A portrait of Albert Einstein

It’s amusing how little things inspire us, and some inspire as such to adopt a new style of art; Do something out of the ordinary – consume ‘life’ in an adventure. To explore new possibilities and to adopt and evolve oneself.
These past few weeks, I have indeed watched a decent share of ‘Great’ films that I consider to be masterpieces of the ‘Cinema’.
Now, here I have painted a portrait of Albert Einstein; A great- great mind of the early 20th Century who poured on our minds the knowledge; to be as technologically advanced as we (the World ) is now. I imagined as, what would it be like to study under his teachings. To be there, one of the students.
// Realism – ( Hyper-realism ? )
//Art Process
Portraiture – this is what urges my finger-tips these days. To grab a brush ( a real brush or a digital one ) and start off- moving closer and closer to achieving ‘the’ Hyper-real. Works so detailed and accurately toned that the result seems near photographic. Though, without the inspiration that those old films provided me with- this would not have been possible. As, the photographs of Einstein are just a few- and for my work I could not use multiple references – as the behaviour of light in nature is complex and imagination fails then- leading the artist in-vain with impractical results. So, a printed image in my hand- I referred to that continually in process of this painting. It is painted just as one would paint a ‘Oil on Canvas’ painting. Only a single layer is used for the subject ( Background layers are separate). Firstly, the rough tonal variations were painted, then the rough micro pores- then the detailed ones; with the lighting continually corrected along the way. The most minute of the details were added without reference, those were by my previous experience with realistic art. Also, hues were altered to end-up with a greyish-brown hue, to promote the feel of ‘importance’. However, nothing was referred for the coat, practising on the canvas, I ended up with a material that mimicked leather- so I went with that.
That is all//


The Surreal Emotions


Yes, just stay..thats what I titles my second artwork made in the same way as my previous artwork (the girl in the machines thingy)…. It starteed as a doodle (as all of my artwork pfft) ..and then it got pretty serious..I ended up created something that was in the back of my mind for quite some time. Draw art that defines the ‘feeling’ of robots and machines.. (and this all started when I first watched Tezuka’s Metroporisu, yeah, Tezuka, you awesome awesome dude!)…..So, here it is…….. Stay


Haha, this time I wont copy the details from Shadowness, but do the opposite..yes, I have uploaded it here first.. Just for YOU ppl [not you, but youuuuu] 


I have had wanted to make an artwork that describes the feeling/emotions of robots. This was to much extend influenced by the films of the great person, Tezuka. Especially his film Metroporisu which is very special to me (and in the number 1 spot in my fav movie list) ^^. The artwork above describes a sad robot who has an arm missing, and is holding a balloon in his other hand ( or something) …. A cat then comes and sits with the robot, as it is curious of this machinery. So, the sad robot wants the cat to ‘Stay’ with him, and not go away, as it will then again be ‘lonely’ and sad..  The steampunk/monochrome style was used to compliment the feel/emotions in this scene by a great amount. Hope you like this one… 🙂

So there, and Reblog it if you like!  🙂

This image will be available on my Shadowness and my Redbubble Store shorty, so that you can buy a high quality (full reslution) print from there…
