Design Chapel

Regular readers of Computer Arts will remember the name Robert Lindstrm from issue 82 in April of this year, when we ran a showcase of his superb illustrative work as our lead profile. In that profile, we featured several of the 'nun illustrations' that have adorned hundreds of desktops - including those in the CA office. Have a look at DesignChapel, his online portfolio site, at to refresh your memory.

The photograph this tutorial is based on was taken outside a chapel in Bonnstan, Skellefte¥ - which Lindstrm refers to as a "300-year-old churchtown in the north of Sweden." The model is Charlotta Lundqvist, who runs the design firm Chalet Design and has also made the clothing worn by models in the series. "The concept behind them is 'nuns' inspired by fashion and design," says Lindstrm. "Some of the 'nuns' are good but most of them are quite bad because of their sexy style, therefore they are rejected by the local priests - like the one in this image - The Rejected Nun."
