Temptation Wins by MelodyNieves Temptation Wins by MelodyNieves
****PLEASE VIEW FULL :D****
Original size shows much better details!

They're still as we pass; frozen in time, these works live amongst the beauty and history of one another.

But at night?

At night they come alive, hide and seeking in the oils of Rembrandt, gazing upon a Starry Night, or dancing with the elegance of Degas.
It's only fitting that these prized visions of an artist's vision quench their thirsts from a fellow work of art.

Mmmmm Dr. Pepper...Temptation Wins Again


Details:
Photoshop CS3 + tablet
approx. 40+ hours

Inspiration
Victorian portraits, oil still life, and Picasso's abstract portrait
work. Was surprised the victorian really looks like me (:
**I know a lot of people are worried about the "mural" aspect of it, but I remember my old drawing professor was a muralist in Philly and she was able to recreate her work like magic! So...

...Good luck to all who entered!

Definitely should have been at least a semi-finalist. I guess if you just put it in space (you know...instead of a silly thing like culture) it would have been...lol

This is fantastic. I agree with what you said, I didn't expect those semi-finalist pictures to be chosen over some of the others I've seen, this one included.
