Wallpaper - Renaissance One (revived)

Lost in the mire of the old forum was my one and only Keira wallpaper contribution. Far be it from me to deny anyone else the pleasure of large-size gorgeousness so I thought I might post it up again.

Made sometime last year in Photoshop 6 with a Wacom Graphire 2 tablet to do an overpaint of a magazine scan. Levels and curves were tweaked to give the "blown out" hightlights while an overpaint of the Cutout filter lends the dappled effect of hand-painting. I used a layer mask to gradually reduce the amount of detail with distance from Keira's face. The original scan stopped just beyond her left arm so I had to paint in the entire wall from scratch using the tablet and merge it with the original painting

Hell of a lot of work for really quite a subtle effect; the hallmark of a quality piece.

As before, I hope this finds it's way on to some desktops.

Renaissance One
