Michael Oswald, or Michael O as he is known via alias at various art communities, is a digital artist who has excelled at marketing his talents and career.
Immensely popular on art sites like Deviant Art, Michael’s work is bold, beautiful and painstakingly rendered. His art is a hybrid of digital painting and photo manipulation that really shows what can be accomplished when you have gobs of talent and a powerhouse application like Adobe Photoshop.
His unique style is characterized by renderings and manipulations of beautiful female figure and portraiture melded with a futuristic android/mannequin/plastic doll feel.
He talks a bit about his process and has some useful tips for digital artists trying to make it in the industry on his site: http://www.bymichaelo.com/process.html
