Ouais, je n'ai pas vraiment trouvé le compromis que je souhaitais entre les éléments hérités de la photo et ceux que j'ai rajouté. Si c'était à refaire, je dessinerais cette image avec Painter X et je n'aurais pas tous ces problèmes!
Yes, you can still see bits and pieces of it here and there, though I mostly painted over it. I would do it slightly differently now, though, there are things about that background I really don't like.
And I think I'll experiment with that technique as well, it had never occurred to me yet to use a photo in that way.
I have tried using photos as backgrounds in colour pictures but was never really satisfied. The photo "clashed" with the graphic elements. But in this stark black and white, Sin-City-ish kind of situation... it seems to work real well^^. AND you can paint over it and have to only worry about black and white values
