Design Statement:

The painting was created using hard and soft brushes, a smart filter, and a speckling brush on the moon and trees. I added a bevel and emboss effect and drop shadow on the girl, and a cloud filter on the top half of the painting. The painting was utilized as the background for a book jacket and the mysterious and ominous feeling works well to support the subject matter of the book itself.

Project Objective:

Create a digital painting from a blank canvas by utilizing the tools and features of Adobe Photoshop and a Wacom Tablet. The digital painting should have a purpose in mind and be integrated into a final printed piece.
