All of my works are digital illustrations and I have tried various digital brushes and image quality textures in order to look the same as the texture on the real canvas. In the first illustration “Camelia1”, I deliberately shape the female body is not so perfect, puffy appearance with a large number of pleats like melted wax oil under her chest. The middle of the body is surrounded by a bloodless torn wound. Two eyeballs share the same eye socket and staring at the outside environment.

 

The second digital illustration “Camelia2” uses the traditional oil painting method of impasto more. In the dark environment, three glassy bottles are placed on the smooth and reflective desktop. These bottles contain a brain, Mobius ring made of a strand of black hair, a young girl with golden hair respectively. The brain in the first bottle represents the thoughts and idea from women that be bound. The second Mobius ring is the cycle of fate, and the third blonde girl is be bound physically. And the meaning of deformed feet in the opposite direction are similar to the pathological control of the body shape.

 

The last picture “Camelia3” shows a crying women’s face that is divided and then combined together, disordered and irregular. However, “Camelia” represents the figure and personality of all women in these three paintings.
