The Making Of The Melting Mind

Melting Mind print 2

On Friday May 16th, The Melting Mind launches as a 48hr Timed Release fine art print. This painting has a special significance to Camilla, and while she doesn’t want to play favourites- this one just can’t be helped.

Camilla has some photos to share of her process creating The Melting mind, from start to finish.

The painting begins with a wood panel, sanded and sketched with an outline of the figure. Some paint is applied as guidelines,

Layers go into the figure in the shaded areas, and the lightened areas.

Many thin layers are built up

Solid colours are added with Holbein acryla gouache

WIP7sm

The layers of gouache may look improvisational, but work to a purposeful creative plan. Lights and darks alternate, creating radiating waves of colour.

WIP9sm

Delicate layers of colour tint areas in the figure, creating soft blush and shadow.

The background is sometimes painted in the later stages.

And voila!

You can add The Melting Mind to your collection starting May 16th at 9AM PST here on Camilla’s eStore.

It’s so exciting to finally release the alternate cover image to the Grant Morrison documentary ‘Talking with Gods’ to all the fans online! We teased a picture of the cover as a work-in-progress a couple of weeks ago, but now you can see the final image below!

The image has already been making its way around the Internet, covered on awesome blogs like Super Punch and Dangerous Minds, and featured in the excellent interview with Camilla on the pop-culture website Guttersnipe.

If you’re attending San Diego Comic-Con, the alternative cover edition of the DVD will be available at the Halo-8 booth (M-03) in the Small Press area, and you can find Camilla at booth 4723.
