Artist's Description

IT WON!!!!

I wanted to create a powerful and moody image, which told a dramatic story. In all my work, light plays an important part, and here it was essential for the drama inherent in the scene.

On 23/09/2010 this work has received 1364 views. 314 comments and 95 favourites.

I created this in Photoshop CS4 and it is a submission for a national photoshop contest.

To create the scene, I merged together 5 images of seas from my own stock, and several skies . The figures in the image were created using models from unrestricted stock in the public domain.They were first copied, then traced over and painted in Photoshop, painting from dark to light. Areas of the sea and sky were also painted in this way.

I have used two main textures which give a ‘painterly’ look, and the impression of age. Three colour fill layers were used to add depth and uniformity of colour to the image.

The cliff, on the left hand side, is the start image for the contest.

The image has been created totally in Photoshop, and all photos used (except the start image) were from my own photo stock.

I hope that you like it.
