Stare by leighyoung

I saved this one to sell at the convention in august, but after everything that happened I'm just now getting around to uploading it. I sold out of it in two days so the only place it's for sale now is in my store here.

This was a dark period. And I was in the mood to play with lots of patterns. I used this as my "grown up" promotional postcard. No responses yet.

This image is now available on skins for iPhone, laptops, PS3 and more. Check it out: [link]

I know there's a sea of comments already, but I had to throw in my two complimentary cents:

Simple, stunning, and mesmerizing. The eyes and and beautiful curves are breath taking. Amazing work.

So, so lovely. The colours, abundance of patterns, contrast in lines - very velvety. The only thing I would change is to bump her up a little in the frame to make it a little less bottom heavy.

It's an intresting composition, the figure in the front provides a nice foil for the intricate pattern and darker colors of the background! The placement of the figure also draws the eye back into the center of the piece, excellent work, very attention grabbing, I can see why you'd use it to advertise!

This is a very nice piece... I like the simplicity of the character against such a detailed background... No wonder you sold out of the piece so fast...

It's this big, heavy book of interior design. Lots of wallpaper, fabric and tile work from the past hundreds of years. Well worth picking up!

Coool - and you just scan them in as is and tweak wherever applicable?

leighyoung Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I scanned one I liked, traced it and then tweaked it to make it a repeating pattern or to fill in spots that didn't scan. I wanted to change something for each pattern so it didn't seem like I was totally biting the original.
