Digital Painting – Rome

Rome by Mark Mushakian western landscape inspired by Danger Mouse album

I have, so far, only had two entries in this category, though I’m hoping to amp up that frequency quite a bit.  Both pictures have been digital paintings inspired by and named after music, one for a song and one for an album, but that probably won’t always be the case.  Probably :).

I’ve been working on the picture above for the last 2 days, and I’m rather happy with it.  It all started when I came across Rome by Danger Mouse, which you can currently listen to in its entirety, as I did, on NPR.  Just the idea behind it all was enough to start my creative interest, and once I started listening to it, I felt compelled to create something.  So, I let it play and started painting.  The first thing I envisioned was a huge sky… a beautiful smorgasbord of color that, like I was amazed by in Red Dead Redemption, very definitely looked like it was painted with broad strokes.  It took shape from there, and I really like how it turned out.

I created this picture as a huge landscape format, so the small size I can show you here does not do it justice (even if I had larger pop-up images available, it still wouldn’t be 100%).  I had originally planned on using Flickr for my digital work, but only the paid version allows full-size images, so if you’d like to see this work in its full detail, please check it out here:

deviantART – Rome

From here on out I’ll include that link near the top, but I wanted to explain it first (don’t forget to zoom in all the way.. it’s a big picture, so if it fits on your screen, you’re not there yet :)).  If you do take a gander, feel free to check out the one other image I have uploaded so far… that is, if the names Fez, Max, and Kermit mean anything to you ;).
