Check out the tutorial I wrote for this image: "She comes from the same gene pool as the Red Queen. She really likes the dark side, but she's so scared of going too far into it that she's made everything appear very light and happy." --Anne Hathaway
I painted myself as the White Queen, based on Hathaway's intriguing commentary and a favorite photo of myself. The title is a double entendre. It refers to the warped perspective used in the painting itself, and the perspective that a person sees and is seen through.
I was going to scrap this painting because it was truly dreadful in the beginning stages. I couldn't get the composition or colors to work out properly, but I persevered. Now it's become my favorite and best painting to date. I'll post the steps of the painting in a little bit.
Critique welcome, but I won't be able to make corrections since this is a contest entry. Time:
- 100% digitally painted in Photoshop CS3
