Mona Lisa, La Joconde...The good old days...My old airbrushing work done for SAFARIR magazine (front cover 1998)



You must have seen this one somewhere before.

I did this one 12 years ago.

Medium used: Airbrush
To do this kind of work I was simply using 3 colors...Cadmium Yellow, Bright red and ultramarine blue (All transparent) + some smoke gray and black

I only had a day to complete it.
It made the front cover of the magazine and it went sold out.

I wanted to share this job with you guys!!!

Que de souvenirs mon cher... heureusement qu'à l'époque je n'ai pas su que tu avais fait en si peu de temps avec seulement 3 couleurs (au airbrush en plus... ffff), j'aurais quitté le métier...

Je m'incline devant autant de talent, Dominic!

Christian Daigle said...

Hé ben mon vieux, si j'avais su à l'époque que tu avais fait ca en si peu de temps, si peu de couleurs et au airbrush de surcroit, j'aurais quitté le métier sur le champs pour aller vendre des chars usagers...

Je m'incline devant autant de talent, Dominic!

Je ne connaissais pas ta version "blonde" de la Joconde (je devais être sur Mars à cette époque-là), c'est sympa de l'avoir partagé avec nous sur ton blog. J'aime bien l'idée de poster de temps en temps des "anciens" travaux (comme le font par exemple Deloire ou Philippe Claeys) sur un blog. Et merci de ton passage sur mon blog.
