En garde, poussée

Post by RBorud » Thu Dec 14, 2017 4:44 pm

Hi All
After going to a shoot at a Medieval fair and good luck with many, I had this left over I did not know what to do with, until this morning when I had an epiphany.
So here goes beat me up. RBorud

No beating up in Image Showcase :D

But as Psjunkie said, there is nothing to beat up on. This works well. I love how the colors complement each other.

You surely have a broad range of interests, subjects, and skills. I open each of your threads like I'd open a present, with great anticipation to see the next treat!

This is quite wonderful, with the terrific detail on the handle and glove, the wonderful background texture that supports the color, light and subject matter, and that extra surprise, the picture-in-picture in the shiny metal ball at the base of the handle. Well conceived and executed. Thanks for this.

I'm curious what the original looked like since the light fits so perfectly with this image. Wonderful! S-

Magical! I sure do love your artistry, rborud. Though I do very much enjoy the mystery and wonder of a finished work, seeing the original image adds another dimension to inspire us with what is possible.

Wow, I might have kept it for interest, but would never have thought of the art you made it. Even more wonderful, thank you! S-
