CINDERELLA CHARACTER

Hey buddies! I've been working hard lately and haven't got the time to create new stuff. Meanwhile, I decided to post this collage that I made yesterday with 2 cinderella characters I created a long time ago. Hope you like it!

Olá amigos, colegas, seguidores e visitantes! Tenho andado bastante ocupado com trabalho ultimamente, e não me tem sobrado tempo para os meus projectos pessoais. Entretanto, resolvi postar esta fotomontagem que criei ontem com 2 characters que fiz já há algum tempo atrás por ocasião de umas ilustrações que fiz sobre o fairytale: Cinderella. Espero que gostem!

Carl Knox disse...

heya!...

Man i'm digging your colour palates... I'm going to have to study some more I think. :P

thanks so much for your comments on my blog! I've got that soundtrack running in my head too! You're not insane. :P

The funny thing is all those sketches were drawn independent of eachother.. just doodling around. And then when you stand back and seem them as a collective them seem to want to tell you a story of asian sword play fighting pirates and bearded-coated men! I love it. Def going to try more of this style.. with inspiration from your colour palate it could end up anywhere. :P

Very nice. Like the longing look in the eyes and the pose.

Francisco Martins disse...

Brian: Thank you so much for passing the Breeze award on to me...I'm very honored to know that my work reaches to someone and inspires other great artists such as yourself. I was very happy to read your comment. Cheers dude!

Miss Stranded: Hey girl! Glad to have you back...we missed you!

Peter: Thanks for stoping by Pete and for you comment. The girl I used as a model is a friend of mine (Maria Vasconcelos), and she has a very expressive face. What I love about her is that she is very chameleonic. She is actualy a burnette with very dark hair, tanned skin and deep brown eyes. I really enjoyed working on the transformation...I changed her hair, her skin tone, eye color, added freckles and changed the dress completely. I loved working on these Cinderella characters.

Eric Barclay disse...

Outstanding work, my friend. Really magical!

douce disse...

I'm surprised I haven't commented on this piece yet, I really love it. Your work reminds me a bit of Pierre and Gille only new and fresh. I guess it is the combination of wonderful photography and beautiful graphics. Someday I hope you will share your secrets on how you put these pieces together! Love it!

Francisco Martins disse...

Eric: Thank you so much Eric, I always apreciate your opinion!

Douce: You're right! Pierre et Gilles and David Lachapelle are amongst my greatest influences. There are many others (such as James Bidgood, Erwin Olaf...), but I would choose those 2 references as the most important.
As for my "secret"...well it's really a simple process. Most of the times I take the photos myself. For exemple, for my cincerella character, I used a friend of mine as a photographic model. She's a burnette, with really dark hair, deep brown eyes, and medium dark skin. Then I changed the color of her eyes and her skin tone in photoshop into a much lighter tone, added some freckes, painted over her skin to get the kind of tone that I wanted - the typical skin of a red head. Then I used a lot photos of hair - pieces from different photos - to create her hair. Then I changed the color of her dress, that was baby blue into brown, painted some holes and patches into the dress to create the look of a very old dress, and then, finaly added the bugs and the birds. In the end, I worked on the color of the whole piece so that it looked uniform and harmonious. That's pretty much it!

See you next post!
