Umbrella Sky, Marta Dahlig (2D)

Title: Umbrella Sky
Name: Marta Dahlig
Country: Poland
Software: Painter, Photoshop

Well, that's a quite old piece originally done for ImagineFX Issue 22. It can also be seen in the upcoming Exotique 3. :)

This version, however is quite different, as I came back to the painting after a longer while and reworked it a LOT.
Overall, it took many hours in Painter and Photoshop. I also used some references (especially for the fish and the sea).

A small walkthrough with some closeups, WIPs and sketches will be available on CGSociety soon. Hope you like it! =)

PS. Title's from the song "Summer wind" by Frank Sinatra :D

Wonderful piece with a great athmosphere, perfect for Exotique's cover.

5 stars, of course.

Great work here Marta

I saw the Imagine FX version previously, and I have to say, this version is a real improvement (the original was great as is). The rock formation is just excellent, very natural and great use of textured brushes. Overall, one of your strongest pieces. 5 stars.

The thumbnail of the Exotique 3 cover was very very promising but this ...whoa.
Almost everything is perfect!
The sky is superb, the umbrella's translucency is amazing, the fishes are photorealistic but still rather surreal, the hair is so masterly done and the overall mood is fantastic. But I don't like that the figure doesn't really interact with its enviroment.
It seems a bit like the figure is floating over the background.

Another Masterpiece! I love how you've painted the rocks, especially the water! Great colours as well! I'm curious to know how long this took you!
