Applesauce by IzzyMedrano Applesauce by IzzyMedrano
where lies the essence of a man?
--------------------his brain,--------
-----------------his heart,-----------
------------his pants,----------------
-----or his hand?--------------------
####################
####################










Some eight hours this weekend, all painted in photoshop. I had a brainwave at work, and did a little inch by inch thumbnail of this image. Went home, after boozing and whatnot... and painted it. I was originally going to do it in acrylics, but pussed out in the end. I used the old photos of munitions tests on fruit and a guy standing in a bidness suit as ref. I stuck with the color scheme of the fruit being shot, and used the splatter texture from the photo because at a distance, I wanted it to read like that.

Interesting piece.  Not sure how, but I see some kind of message in here regarding education.  Maybe something to the effect of "it's just a business now, so f*ck it?"  I dunno.  Run with that. LOL Great work. :clap:

One of my favourite pieces on deviantArt. The color composition, texture, detail, the -concept-: everything is brilliant. A very ingenious and very well-executed painting.

And I really like the way the pinstripes on his suit jacket end in round, curly lines...somehow it's the little details I love best sometimes!
