    Mural "Creation" - studies&details

    Hello everybody,

    In 2002/03, I was working on studing and painting 48 square meter ( 4x12 m ) composition "Creation" for The Manual&Co, leather goods company from Novi Sad, Serbia, town where I am currently living.

    On this painting I depicted a street in imaginary ancient town with diferent kind of craftsman and workers, and with accent on people practise traditional leather treating crafts. Some of the figures I painted were inspired by the works of famous artists like Michelangelo, Puget, Veronese...

    Composition was divided in 12 pieces 2x2m, which I was painting two by two and after each pair was finished, they hung it on the ceiling of The Manual&Co exhibition room-store. I painted it with oil colors on very thin woodpanel, curved on the metal frame to follow curve of the ceiling. After the all 12 pieces were hung, I fixed and painted gaps between them.

    Here are some studies and details from the finished painting. Photos of the painting were taken under very bad lighting conditions and you'll notice a distortion because the surface is curved ( especialy on the image with marble blocks ).

    Hope you'll find something you'll like.

    All good-hearted coments are welcome. :o)

    Best!

    i hope swearing is allowed because i would like to scream holy f*ck. why isn't this thread flooded with replies?

    this is amazing, simply amazing. the poses are brilliant, the anatomy almost flawless, the colors, the compositions, brilliant, brilliant! i adore the way you draw your hands. they look very boney, real craftsman-hands.

    (i must say though, the guy with the hammer on his shoulder in the third image looks like he's showing off his nice bum.)

    Do you have more images, maybe one of the complete ceiling?

    Thank you very much guys! You're really kind! :o)

    I don't have image of the complete painted composition, but I'll post a complete study that I made in the beginning, when I take time to scan it. At this moment, I only have a bad photo of it.
    Now, I'm posting a photo of the first finished piece - 2x2 m.

    To Zergaloth: Yes, you're right about that guy with a hammer, but it wasn't my intention to make some hidden messages. I only wanted to practice drawing of the man's back.

    Here are some more...

    All the best to all of you! :o)
