Mythical creatures

  Recently I was given a challenge that I absolutely fell in love with. It’s been a long time since I really took the time to sit down and put brush to canvas and just paint. So with that in mind the challenge was to take a collection of the most beautiful women in my life and do nude portraits of them depicted as various mythical creatures. Once completed the whole line will be displayed in a public venue in downtown Ottawa and obviously, they will be for sale. ;) I asked each model to decide which creature they would like to be and their answers were as follows:
April V. Skyee – Mermaid
Randi Rouge – Banshee
Maggie Sue Sin – Biomancer(Narf)

Lisa Webb – Vampire
Dovie – Succubus
Shade Nyx – Sea demon
Aurora Lou – Zombie Queen
Belinda Anguis – Fairy
Tailz – Werefox
Needless to say I am having a blast creating these pieces. I am painting them in various styles using acrylic paint and some mixed media techniques. But for once I am not using my airbrush. I’m going back to the original contemporary still life skills that i learned waaaaaaay back in my college days. It’s good to go back and revive an old skill every now and then. It definitely helps to break up the monotony of working in the same medium over and over again. there is one more piece that i would love to add to this collection. She’s thinking about it. I had an image of a white viper with black pattern Medusa that screams to be modeled by one person
and one person only. ;) I hope she does it as it would fit her like a glove. :)
So stay tuned for upcoming pics and sneak peaks of the collection as it progresses.
So tell me….if I had approached you to model for this series….what would you have chosen to be? Hit me back, I’d love to know. ;)
