The Year of Jubilee by KristinaGehrmann The Year of Jubilee by KristinaGehrmann

My web portfolio!



The year is 1500, and Cesare Borgia celebrates the state and his family by leading a triumph procession through Rome.

I'm not sure how many figures are in this painting; I stopped counting at twenty-one.
Ever since I was a teenager I've had a secret crush on giant, pompous, oversized, overcrowded historical paintings (yes, yes, I know that cramming lots of people into a painting doesn't automatically make it good), or pretend-historical paintings. There's a huge painting by Hans Makart in the Hamburg Kunsthalle that I'm in love with :D

Ah well. My next one will be much, much simpler. I must focus on the fundamentals of drawing; perspective and anatomy especially. Still got a lot to learn and it's gonna take time; please bear with me.

Medium: Photoshop and Wacom tablet
Time taken: About 30-40 hours, not including wasted hours of procrastination and time spent on searching references.

That's a great canvas ! From the first glance, I thought of the paintings of Breughel

wonderful!! So nicely done- the details of texture on the building are incredible! I find those kinds of things can get very tedious, you did a great job! I love your perspective, the view point to me on this makes it so interesting!

Great work! Love the color scheme you've used. Only suggestion from me is adding some sharp highlights on the brick walls. Also, some sharp shadows would add to to the contrast of the piece but guessing from the cloudy sky, it may look unrealistic if you do so. Either way love it! :+fav: and voted here.

As always, you turn out suburb work. The composition of this piece is especially nice. I love the way you have the colors playing off each other.
