This is my entry into the "5th Scream" contest by Adobe. Inspired by Edvard Munch's "The Scream" paintings. This is playing on the illusion that Edvard saw in the sky. It's also a play on the "blank stare". This is "Blank Scream" — that moment when you see something so shocking it stops you in your tracks and captivates you.
I really wanted to focus on the sky and the eyes because that's what stands out the most to me the when I look at Edvard Munch's painting of The Scream.
Here's the animated gif of my process from start to finish. It's a little scary for me to watch this because this shows you all at once if your image got better or worse as it progressed. Haha!
Finally, enjoy some beautiful detail shots below. Created using Kyle Webster's MUNCH brushes and my Digital-Ink Brushes (for the gold foil details).
Thank you for viewing!
