Pilots call me Starbuck. You may refer to me as God.

oh my god so many layers D:

This was an assignment for a digital illustration class – create a portrait out of provided illustrations of food and objects. Her wings are made of corn, her hair is leaves and shaving brushes, her face is mostly turnips.

I am actually not a big fan of collage, so this was an interesting challenge. Definitely not something I would have attempted on my own, and probably wouldn’t have gotten through if I hadn’t bribed myself with a BSG rewatch while I worked. 🙂  I ended up having to rush on the face and the hair a bit due to deadlines, may go back and tweak those in the future. Then again, just this much took me 10+ hours, so maybe not. XD

edit: And now with color!

Angel Starbuck in color! (spoilery caption is slightly spoilery)

Not entirely happy with this. The assignment called for us to emphasize the individual pieces of the collage, but I kinda bent the rules in my original creation so this didn’t translate too well in the color phase. The result is sort of an awkward halfway point between that approach and a more realistic one. Necessary for the grade, but not how I would have handled it otherwise. It was fun to paint, though!
