Marvellous modern live figures of the famous historical portraits of the great persons by a graphic designer using photo manipulation and digital painting techniques.
29 year old Becca Saladin, a graphic designer from Dallas, Texas started working on this designing project in February 2019. Now it has been very famous among all within a small time period.
Her posts are published on Instagram @royalty_now_ and these works of her grab the attention and likes on Instagram flow in quickly. Her channel has over 31,000 followers now. These followers are very keen on her work and they see for regular updates too.
Becca shared with FEMAIL during an interview:
“My purpose really is to keep people’s passion for history alive and show them that humans from the past faced the same struggles and triumphs we do today.”
She starts her work while finding a stock image of the same looking person as the one in the historical portrait. She thereby uses her skills and a lot more manipulation techniques to get the best result through it.
Becca said to FEMAIL, “It’s easy when I have a realistic portrait to work from, such as Henry VIII or others that clearly show the original hair and eye colour. Contemporary descriptions also help.”
“The challenge is in the portrait busts that I create – specifically Cleopatra, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, for example.”
