Sick Bacchus by Whiteparasite Sick Bacchus by Whiteparasite
"Sick Bacchus" from Caravaggio was always one of my favourite paintings...
Caravaggio's painting: [link]

I decided to make my version of it, as a colour exercise and light.
Full view recommended, since the table has some interesting details on it :p

Photoshop :)

Comments, tips and advices are very welcomed!

Sick Bacchus by ~Whiteparasite. An interesting interpretation of Caravaggio's work; the details are finely painted and the mood is very dark and macabre. ( Suggested by CarinaReis and Featured by alicexz )

Beautiful work! Love the detail in the skull and portrait, especially the glow within the head.

Caravaggios one doesnt look that sick. This one for the contrary looks physically and psycologically deranged.

'This one for the contrary looks physically and psycologically deranged'. That is why I love it!! 
~Whiteparasite FYI; Your work has influenced one of my projects which will be shown locally (Malta) at an Arts Museum.
