So Very Broken

by roberto blake

Digital Painting- So Very Broken model: Marcus J Ranum stock I've been working more with various digital painting and photo-manipulation techniques, toning and blending, with excellent results. Marcus J Ranum's stock is always excellent source material and very convenient to use! I had been trying to think of several concepts for this particular stock image for a while, I wanted to approach it in a unique way. The answer came from something I was writing in a short story which is where the title and theme of this image comes from. I used the word broken repetitively in the background, you can see it without looking to hard. I liked using type in an image this way I feel it added another dimension to the piece. I would really love any comments and critiques I can get on this image. Thanks! If people request it I will specifically make a wallpaper version of this available in different sizes on my website.
