The concept behind this image was the liberated mind through alcohol. Depicting the human brain celebrating added an deeper meaning behind the piece. I wanted to communicate a dark ambigous, atmosphere while keeping the image graphic. I thought it was important to exhibit the male figure happy, this reflects most people’s feelings towards alcohol while they are drinking.
This is the first time, I painted digitally using a cintiq. I think the difference in quality is major. The viewer can feel the brush strokes. The Cintiq replicates the human touch more accurately than the intuos.
