Belly Dancer by echo-x Belly Dancer by echo-x
This was a private commission of a Burlesque Belly Dancer. I'm very happy with it.

MODEL: (withheld)
PLATFORM: PC and Mac
TOOLS: Two Wacom tablets (Cintiq 21UX and Intuos 4)
PROGRAM: Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
EFFECTS: I don't use any 'effects'. In Illustrator I use simple strokes and Brush strokes, gradients and gradient meshes, and many many objects with varying transparency settings. In Photoshop I paint, often using the semi-transparent settings and glaze in the traditional neo-classic technique.

I didn't intend on it - but I think it makes a great pairing with Bubo v2.0.

Depends on what you consider expensive. I've had larger projects - but this one did come out very.... rich.

I admire your ability to make women look both real and sensual/sensuous instead of overly idealized like so many artists do.

Thank you. I think women draw women differently than men do. Some people prefer the difference and others don't.

Thank you. I love playing with depth and perspective. Sometimes she's part of the stained glass and sometimes she's not.

Bubo is Greek for Owl. It is currently used as the Genus name for the Horned Owls and their relatives with ear tufts. It is also the common name for the Greek owl - which is also the name for Athena's owl - which was made into a clockwork owl for the original Clash of the Titans movie. My piece is titled Bubo v2.0 because it's version 2 of the clockwork owl.

Simly elegant and those rich colors are amazing! I love the little chain that leads to the peacock and how he is staring at it! The details are so superb! You never disappoint your crowds! Fabulous work!

Ugh- this is almost annoyingly great. I love how lush the colors are- you would think that the broadness of the palette would make it look... busy? But your organization and composition is so great- it's just great. Super great. So great it's like I forgot how to use other words.
