kazumiMURATA by brianf kazumiMURATA by brianf
_k a z u m iMURATA_

Mostly an experiment. Started when my mom had me throw away some dead flowers. I managed to save some, and scan them. I then airbrushed this woman, which is very beautiful.

Airbrushing in photoshop6, many hours of work.
________________________________________ _

**EDIT*: Many have probably thought I tried to copy Hana by iCE. Eh, I was inspired by it, so please dont compare. My intentions were only artistic. And more, to experiment. My future deviations will have better airbrushing, since I have practiced for quite a while. At the moment, my airbrushing is looking a bit flat, (you probably noticed that). And once more, please, look at this, as if you have never seen Hana before. Especially specific deviants who discriminate this art not by means of visual, but by means of comparing. :**

I must say that everything must never look anywhere close to anything else otherwise the trashing starts to happen.

I am sorry and totally disagree with anyone that thinks this looks like Hana by ICE. Anyone that thinks so is a total idiotic moron.

The leaves are not in the same place, the chick looks totaly different. In Hana the girl looks to the upward left, here the girl is facing you. Much much more is different...Art is art. Some music sounds like others but I bet you don't go knocking that.

Brian don't listen to fools this is an awsome piece of work and having a insperation from the Hana piece by ICE is cool. ICE Group and darkhalo would not mind I am sure cause this is not even close to looking the same as Hana. Good artists strive for others to do good to, even if you have to use the same techniques.

Hope you have more going to check out your gallery now.
Keep up the good work and don't bow down to fools no more. Your work is yours no others.]

Later...

You did a great job of airbrushing, and the fact that you used the petals added more of a nostalgic and asthetic effect to your piece. I'd love too see your airbrushing get better, although that young lady was nicely done.

very interesting. I would have liked it a little more detailed, and the flowers gone over and airbrushed or something. They don't seem to match :( (Sad)

still looks cool tho

i dont like the deviation, and here's my reasoning why: to me, it looks waaay to much like Hana by iCE ([link] ). the flowers are in the same areas, and the girl looks similar. i think the work is great, but because i saw the other work first, it doesnt stick out to me

erm.. that first line should've been that the dried flowers add a great sense of depth, not airbrushing.. it's been a long day ;) (Wink)

willowheart Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2002
I agree that the airbrushing adds a really great sense of depth, although I do see a few things that I feel could use a little work. Something about the lines on her face just kind of bothers me, and the shading (especially on the underside of her chin) looks a little bit off to me. All in all I think it's a beautiful pic, and I love the mixed mediums! Very well done. I'm gonna go check out the rest of your gallery now :) (Smile)

This is beautiful. I love the slightly curious look on her face, and the use of colour. But the border colour would look nicer if it tied in more with the painting.
