Photo Paintings from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim

Normally I have a breakdown of the steps for these photo paintings, but since it’s been one was completed last fall and the other a month and a half ago, I realized that this post would never get posted.  Both of these were from pictures I took at the 2015 Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.  During the whole convention, I was unaware that my lens needed repair. Basically it could not focus at any range and setting.  So the photos are only ok at a small size.  But one of the great things about photo paintings is that the image does not need to be sharp.  In most cases, I take a sharp image and blend it to make it look like a painting.  I still have one more painting I wish to do from star wars celebration.  My favorite Mashup was RocketFett, a mashup of The Rocketeer and Boba Fett.  You can find him on instagram at @ROCKETFETT.

Before I get into the images for this post, I just wanted to say that all of the cosplayers were really nice and were more than willing to pose for pictures.  I only wish my lens would have been ok, so I could share the images with them.

I am featuring two cosplayers that I had followed on instagram prior to the convention.

Amber Arden @amberarden

Early in the convention I had taken a picture of her as Snowbafett, but when I saw the Sith Snow White mashup, I knew that would be the one I would use for the painting.  She is also a Custom Cocktail Hat & Jewelry Designer, you can find more info at @AmbersUniqueBoutique or visit her Etsy store at www.etsy.com/shop/AmberArden.

Completed Photo Painting

I have included a simple fade between the original and the final image.  It’s a great way to see how it goes from a photo to a painting

I’ll Include two full resolution files, the first is the finished product as seen above.  While the second is at the level of brightness I needed to used to print on my Canon Pro-100 printer using fine art paper in Adobe Lightroom CC

This was my second favorite photo I took of Joanna,  My favorite was one of her looking over her shoulder, unfortunately it didnt’ show the R2 portion of the dress, I thought this was a better representative of the theme.  She also had an amazing Old Obi-Wan Kenobi with a walker, I’m sure people had no idea it was a girl.
