And was nice enough to share it with me and let me use it for my own interpretation and digital painting. Go check out the draft in detail, click above. </p> Photoshop CS3 & wacom. Zoom view for details. This version here is a sketch to use as a guide for a higher resolution version I hope I have time to paint soon. The whole thing is going to need to be painted again for print and to pack more details in, but I'll show the sketch for now. A lot more labor intensive than the typical type of sketches I do, which are generally a mixed media paint + digital composite. In this case specific close reference was not available, so, this sketch is all paint working off the lineart at just 1261x1684 px. Thanks to /meredith , /khavinsky , my sis, and of course /snowmask for their feedback during the design of this.

In this piece more than any of my others, the physical presence of the camera in my hands translates through to the final image, imho. Like the brush strokes on a painting, the "performance of the exposure", is very visible to me in the end work. That performance is something private for me most of the time, I do not like to work with people around me when I shoot, and do not like to have the performance so visible in the final work that is obscures what else I try to put into it. In this case though it all comes through in a way, the feel of camera hand held tightly in the gusting wind and waning sun of evening. The clicking of dials and buttons narrating the moves in a mental chess game I wade against time and light. The frenetic repositioning on my knees in the mud to fix the relationships of my elements before the tightening of breath, steadying of my body, the quiet slam of the mirror catches a little piece of reality. The focus of emotional/internal energy on finding a way to live up to the potential of this moment. All of that, that camera as a flexible instrument and it's use, the dance; at lest to my eye is woven into the fabric of this shot in a balanced way.
