La Femme

La Femme: James White

This piece is based on the 1978 poster entitled La Femme est l’avenir de l’europe by Roman Cieslewicz. I was so intrigued by Cieslewicz’s use of bold colored lines on rough photography that I wanted to pay homage to his style, while attempting to make the piece my own.

This was a very tricky process to get the lines moving in the proper direction and involved a lot of Photoshop painting to get the proper color effect.

You can check out the original piece here in Alk1’s Flickr set.
