Reworking a promo shot from the movie Black Swan. There's been a lot of discussion on the Studio Artist forum recently about building new approaches to abstracting shapes in photos to make them more 'composed' and 'stylized' (as opposed to the more normal paint the physical photo approach). It's trying to get more into understanding abstraction processes that traditional painters who actually hand paint everything work through when developing their work. Not that this piece really achieves that, but it's from one experiment.
