Not really sure where these pieces came from! This morning I just looked at the dog's bed and the creases and folds looked like human forms! So I snapped a pic on my phone and used that as a starting point!
For 'Guardian' I added a texture, duplicated a couple of times with different blending modes, and then digitally painted the shapes to highlight the suggestion of form. Then I added various other textures and adjustment layers until I got something I was happy with!
'Prayer' was created from the 'Guardian' piece. Then I added lots of brushwork, with loads of different blend modes, over the top to make it a more painterly piece.
I had a very relaxing and fulfilling time creating these!
