Absinthe Eye by Blasterkid Absinthe Eye by Blasterkid
I wanted to add this one up only because I think this just as easily could have been a Joker pin-up or any other sort of surreal take on a comic character. This water color work was an incredibly important period of my early evolution doing my own work...and in some ways breaking away from very tight pencils and inking into something a little more kinetic and wild.

This is still probably one of my favorite things I've done in color.

It's basically ink washes, water color and a little acrylic paint on bristol board..oh and alcohol.

:)

The drawing itself is based on a photo by Perou...I used the pose, and clothing and warped it into an Alice in Wonderland type thing. The effect I was going for was basically like splashing around inside a bottle of Absinthe..

I love it! I'm a huge Marilyn Manson fan and I must say I'm really impressed in your depiction of that pose.
You really captured his earlier style, 'Portrait of The American Family' in particular.

Now I really love the color scheme and how you draw all the attention to his lips.
Really amazing.

Good job! But it's not from one of my dad's photos...

Blasterkid Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2008
wow really? I didn't know that.

To be honest I always felt uncomfortable riffing off something that your father (well in my mind) had originally created.

I respect his work tremendously and even though I was sort of happy with the end result on this...I felt working off a great photo (that I didn't take) was walking a line I was not sure I was totally comfortable with/ whether giving credit or not.

thanks for the info Cyril. I will look into giving proper credit on this one right now.

ricH.

No worries, I think it might be from Perou, but not sure. Either way, when you create a painting or drawing based on someone's photograph, it is generally not considered a rip off. I believe the saying goes "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", hehe.

I hate that saying.

I do believe it is by Perou...I did some research tonight and it seemed to fit.

Thanks again Cyril.

Hope you had a nice Holiday.
