scales


501!
Well, this was fun. Being a connoisseur of fine fish bones and herringbone-patterned scales I just had to contribute something to Illustration Friday this week. So I took an old painting (to the right), cropped a detail from it, stripped it of all its colour then had a little party in Photoshop. I think it's an improvement.

501 Yeah!

I have a Herringbone Overcoat that is timeless...it will never go out of style.

I lurve the similarity betwixt the steel grip pattern and the bones..the skeletal relief..the backbone of construction whether it be a sleek fish or the steps into a gigantic monstrous truck that carts around huge boulders in a pit mine...tough, practical and stylish.

What the hell did I just say?

I think I'm with you on this one, I think the digital version is preferable. I think it's the colour balance that works.

What a fun idea! You did a top notch job integrating the Photoshop work into the painting.
