LOVG -single cover by PapaNinja LOVG -single cover by PapaNinja
Cover of the last single of the spanish band "La oreja de van Gogh". it was a harsh work, I've done it in very short time. Hopefully, the members of the band were very kind and very helpful.
Done with Photoshop.
The song is available here : [link]

Wow, that's just amazing, i thought it was a photo at first despite me knowing well you are damn good at painting realistic looking people .. but you really out did yourself with this one, fantastic work specially on the back-lit hair .. that's one neat effect.

I've been watching you for long time and always got a lot of knowlege about ways to make works realistik. One day I thought that I came very close to your level of realism, but this piece showed me how expressive and inspiring the realistic work can be. Bravo! And thank you! Now I can realise how long my way to master level is.

This is simply awesome, congrats. Leire looks as beauty as always :)

Did the band members wanted to be involved with your work in some way? Or they let you total freedom?

Thanks a lot for sharing

It was a bit complicated beacuse I only had two days to paint it. It's my idea, it allowed me to be a bit lazy ;)
You will see that the album cover will be ... more detailed :D

And thank you ;)

"Vuela un columpio sobre mi cabeza,
vuela por el cementerio de mi voluntad.
Sigo buscando la niña que llora en tus fiestas,
suenan campanas en flor por mi funeral.

Mírame con la estrella polar a mis pies
vuelvo a casa perdida otra vez
porque no sé dejar de adorarte...."

I can see the late '70s influence, especially on the lettering, with the lens flare on the G. (Quit making me feel old!) Great job.
