Wolfenshire, a prolific Renderosity artist, is a master of photo-manipulation. Created to accompany his writing, Rook, page 144-148, is a perfect example of how this skilled artist transforms a photo into a moody work of art. I love the noir theme and style of this image. The twist of the head (meant to avoid the cig smoke) is a detail that also portrays the character as well. Add the furrowed brow and you get the image of a dangerous man in the middle of trying to decide what to do.
Wolfenshire is a good writer as well as a visual artist. Please visit his active and large gallery at Renderosity for more great art.
