Description This illustration was painted in photoshop in Jan 2014. It shows two skeletons in love on st Valentines day night in a graveyard. The male skeleton is presenting his beloved with a bouquet of flowers, for which the female is extremely happy. The design of the skeletons are slightly cartoony to make them more appealing and easier to draw. The colours of the scene are quite muted, but the flowers less so. The diagonal of the males arm with the flowers thrusting in to the scene, is balanced out in the composition with the diagonal of the landscape with church in the opposite direction.
Martin Davey, Southampton Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Hi,
Welcome to my gallery, which contains largely illustrations for the childrens market.
I like my paintings to be as accessible as possible to a wide audience. Detail and colour are important, combined with a simple visual message for any one to enjoy.
The artwork is created entirely in the art program, photoshop, from the rough drawing up to the finished work,using a drawing tablet.
My career has largely been based in creating artwork for the animation industry.
