Van Gogh


My rendition of Vincent Van Gogh. I noticed how earshaped his head was in his self portraits, so I thought it would be interesting to explore the concept of his madness and the possible reason behind him cutting off his own ear- the persistent nagging of the artist's self-doubt and the sinister whisperings of his insanity.

For this I used dry brush and Photoshop.

Found you through a tweet and glad I did. Your work is amazing. And I'm very grateful for the photoshop brushes. I'm working on a graphic novel and fairly new to digital work. I know a few of those brushes will make life easier and the image more interesting. Thanks again! ~Leda
