Although I hadn’t planned to do this for a while, when I made a preliminary sketch, I realised that it wouldn’t be as difficult as I thought. Not only that, I also thought that the room in the painting looked a bit “empty”. So, I thought that I’d add some extra stuff and, before I knew it, my remake had turned into a 1980s/90s-style gothic horror cyberpunk painting.
And, yes, during my research, I learnt that Van Gogh used to do vaguely similar kinds of radical style changes when he copied other paintings. What can I say? I wanted to look for the “goth” in “Van Gogh”. And, yes, I know that it’s a mispronunciation, but ‘rule of cool‘.
Oh, before I post the painting at the end of the article, here’s the line art for it too 🙂
