Madreal (Derrick Hodgson) Art Inspiration Piece

This was my final sketchbook assignment for my Sketching and Communications Class. I was assigned to research the artist:Madreal ( aka Derrick Hodgson ) and using her art as my inspiration I came up with the above image as my final art piece.

Through my research, I have found that Madreal's art has a simplicity to it all, she uses very gentle, soothing colors in her art pieces and very simple character figures to create outstanding works of art. I personally love her use of pastels in her art and designs; the backgrounds are quite lovely but although the random figures she uses in her art are cute, I'm not a big fan of the scribbles...All in all, she is a good artist .

I painted a water-colored background with pastel color selections and then I scanned it onto my computer. From there i used a combination of different photoshop brushes in order to create all of the white spirals and designs. Then i added the characters onto the canvas and Voila; a masterpiece was created !! :D
Enjoy =)
