Lament Of The Cherub
Digital Composition, photographic collage and painting. I set up a still life of a violin and photographed it. I composited a stone statue of a cherub (purchased stock image) on top, giving the little figure digitally-painted skin tones and texture, 'real hair', realistic shadows and 'real eyes'. I added the splashing tear and small puddle (digitally drawn). Lastly, I matched the directional light source from the background image to the figurine.
