Homeland - 2012 Redo - Full by Dreamspirit Homeland - 2012 Redo - Full by Dreamspirit
Completed on the evening of January 15th, 2012

As I mentioned before, somewhere on January 14th, I managed to overwrite my original file with something 20% the total size. :-/ As such, what you see here is the actual size of the piece.

Considering it was originally supposed to be a 2012, updated version of this piece from 2006: I am incredibly pleased how it turned out.

I learned a heck of a lot working on it and really challenged myself with everything from the countryside, through to some attempted perspective, four figures, and some appropriate lighting for the scene. I tried to improve upon the layout and design of the original from 2006 and to hopefully bring out a sort of warm and inviting feeling of a long-awaited homecoming.

I struggled not to lose the sort of loose painterly feel I began with, and I hope you guys enjoy it. :)

Painted from start to finish in Photoshop CS5.

Personal Story Art.
