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 )

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.

Caravaggio's "Sick Bacchus" is a delightful looking sickness...
This is my version of it, more "...physically and psycologically deranged" as you stated ^_^
Thank you for your comment :thanks:

This is really cool! What kind of brush setups where used?
Reply
:iconwhiteparasite:
Whiteparasite Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012
Thank you :)

Hm...for this one I used a brush with some texture to do the sketch and most of the shading and for the colour blending and the final touches I've used the soft round brush.
For some elements, like the apron, I've created my own brushes.
Hope I have helped :)

What I love about this is that Bacchus was one way, in his flesh, but in his spirit this is what he was.
