Kill Bill

I made this image for ArtsWorcester's Art on the Line event this week. It will be printed 8x8 inches and I'm only doing a limited run of ten. $20 apiece.

It took a few hours in the afternoon. It's very loose, I wanted to keep the energy very high. Below is the thumbnail idea. Notice that I foreshortened her leg from the original idea. I really like foreshortening, it involves the viewer in the art.

Cthulhu 2

Worked some more on this. I was thinking about making the story more interesting, like maybe the end of the reign of man just happened to interrupt a young couple's make-out session. This version is too 'exploitationey'. I liked the silliness of the bra across the guy's face, but couldn't come up with a way to take it off of her without being really corny. 'Huh-huhuh…boobs' isn't my aim. I'll keep working on it. I'm aiming for something that feels big like this one.

Also of note, I decided on the compositional flow, and am sticking to it. I really like the 'curved thunderbolt' shape, and as soon as I reworked the image into that flow, it came together. The first version (my previous post), really feels like a lump of clay compared to this one. Still just stealing time to work on this, so it's going slow. More to come later.

Did some illustrator sketching this morning

I have this Cthulhu concept that was rejected from an old project. I'm thinking about making it into something. This is really rough and early. I'm going to resketch it a few times before it goes anywhere. Not crazy about the colors just yet either...should the car be fleeing? Or maybe there might be a couple in it, maybe there's some heavy petting going on.
