Tribal by JustinGedak
This is a digital portrait painting of a tribal themed barbarian woman that I created with Corel Painter.

I see her as someone who is ruthless, and savagely fierce. A silent warrior born from the jungle. A killer and a hero. A savior and a destroyer.

She looks forward in an intimidating gaze, ready to conquer whatever challenges come her way. Her eyes are ready and fearless, her soul untamed and free. 

She lives by her own laws.

She will never accept defeat.

Found Her Freedom by JustinGedak
Found Her Freedom
This is a surreal fantasy portrait of a barbarian woman who has been through a lot. Someone who has faced horrors and nightmares, and who has seen and endured the worst.

But she has made it through, and found peace at last. After so many years in the dark, she has found her freedom.

As she lay on the ground, gazing up at the clear, open sky, she daydreams of her future. She imagines all of the beautiful experiences awaiting her.

She is happy, hopeful, and feeling truly alive.

She is finally free.

Thoughtful Vengeance by JustinGedak
Thoughtful Vengeance
This is a portrait of a mysterious vampiric warrior.

Shrouded in shadows, she thoughtfully contemplates her dark and ruthless actions of vengeance. 

She holds no remorse, for her victim was well deserving the suffering. She feels as if she is holding nothing at all, actually. It's as if she has been freed for the first time in her long existence.

The hate within her has been vanquished, and ahead of her is the light of a new life. The shimmering of hope. 

Vampire by JustinGedak
This is a surreal fantasy digital painting of a beautiful and mysterious vampire woman. It was created with a combination of digital painting, and photo manipulation using mainly Corel Painter, with a little Photoshop for touch-ups. Reference photos were based on my own photography.

This is my favorite painting yet. I'm really proud of it. I see this character as a mysterious loner. A quite beauty brooding in the distant shadows.

She is strong, cunning, and fierce.

Patient, and wise.

She knows what she wants, and she does not feel guilt for going for her desires.

She is the Vampire.

Creating artwork has been a way of exploring the shadowy places existing within myself. A form of self-discovery in its own way. I've always said that coming up with the ideas behind my paintings is like pulling strange shapes out from a dark corner, not knowing what's coming, but pulling anyway.

With every creation comes a mystery to be explored. A story to be experienced. The not knowing of what comes next is what drives me forward. What pushes me to keep creating. To keep learning and growing. To never stop changing.
