professor Victoria Martin student work: Nicole
Palm Beach State Graphic Design and Fine Art Student Nicole R.

My Photoshop students were required to create a digital illustration based on the style/technique of a well known artist. My super talented student Nicole R.  chose Kehinde Wiley to be her muse.

Nicole’s stunning digital painting (above) was created entirely in Photohsop using a Wacom tablet. Nicole started with a line drawing and slowly blocked in shadows, highlights and voila the rest as they say is magic. What I really like about Nicole’s interpretation¬† is that it isn’t a straight up copy. She did her own thing. And that’s what great artists do; they see, they distill and they make it their own.

Below is a painting by Nicole’s inspiration Kehinde Wiley. Nicole your work ethic and dedication to your work is inspiring. Keep up the good work .
