portrait of Charles Darwin by Deevad portrait of Charles Darwin by Deevad
This is a personnal tribute. I started studying more about Charles Darwin carreer and impact on science while reading "The God Delusion" by Richard Dawkins. Good book. So, I wanted to paint a portrait, using many species as brushes, ordering them in pseudo branching... and I failed to be consistent or exact about branching and decided to fall into more a sort of symbolic branching. Art have this advantage to keep a part of poetry.
Still, the task was hard, and a real puzzle game with many rules of color values and colors temperature to respect to keep contributing to the global portrait. Certainly better could be made but I decided to stop detailing it or fixing it. I didn't want to start loosing energy of stokes and first intention.
Note : It ended to a familiar rendering like the famous portraits of Giuseppe Arcimboldo ( I loved those portrait in my childhood, not really now, maybe they came back unconsciously ).

"I love fools' experiments. I am always making them."
- Charles Darwin
