This started as a small experiment that I would do at night if I was too tired to oil paint. Digital painting is much less taxing physically, so I had no problem picking at this before I went to sleep. It started with a sculpt of a head I did in Zbrush, which I then brought into Photoshop. Before I knew it, it took on a life it’s own. Forms, shapes and colors seemed to take on their own life, and I would find myself in an almost meditative state when I was open to it.
This headspace I found myself in, energized me and instead of something I would do before bed, I would work on this digital piece as a warm-up before I started to work on my traditional oil painting. It helped me tune in to a completely new frequency and “listen” to the painting instead of telling it what to do.
