THE DIGITAL ART OF KO R R Y B A S S


This portion of the book is dedicated to the digital paintings that i have done over the years. There are all drawing that are done on the computer using a wacom tablet. I use a reference photo of the person I’m drawing and then I draw them and add my twist or flare to the picture.


You rarely see well preserved artifacts and statues of african cultures. So I decided to do a redition of old roman and greek statues but instead of being the usaual person of greek decent, I did one of someone of African American decent. The words are latin for the “Lost Beauty�.


This is a play of the statue of Nefertiti. Instead of having the head dress that most queens and kings of eygpt had, in this portrait the status is her hair acting as a head dress. This is a social commentary on how in today’s society african american woman place importance on the hair.


Digital Photo Manipulation


These are different from my previous drawing because these are actual photos that I have added to. None of these photos are drawn from stratch like the previous ones in this book. I have just mostly add elements to existing photos. I believe that a photo should strike you. There should be a very strong element of dreamlike state to it. This is what i try to create when working with real images.


THE END

get it? The end. HAHA
