Prothese Redone

I've officially finished my digital redo of "Prothese"! This will be the first of a series of digital paintings exploring Body Modifications (real and potential) in an Art Nouveau aesthetic. Many of these paintings will be recreations of previous acrylic paintings (which you can see by clicking the body modification tag below).
This painting took about two weeks to paint digitally on Paint Tool Sai and all of the textures used are my own. The sweet briar used in the frame has traditionally meant "a wound to heal". The mill city skyline is inspired in part by Lowell, MA. If you're interested in buying a print, please go to my RedBubble store.

 The idea behind this series is to use the widely loved aesthetics of the Art Nouveau movement, specifically the work of Alphonse Mucha, to express the intriguing yet controversial theme of Body Modification. As some of the later pictures will explore, some modifications are to give a person the same physical capabilities as those around them whereas others are intended to heighten inherent physical abilities. And of course, some modifications are purely aesthetic.
