Long time no post! Still in a bit of debate as to how much sketchy stuff I want to toss up here; I think it'd be good to post more unfinished stuff but I just can't be arsed. xD
But anyways, this is an illustration for our honors program, this one's an editorial illustration for an article about a death row warden. Pretty crazy shtuff.
This is actually my first finished oil illustration, which was a lot of fun, I think I'm starting to figure out how to apply my digital color knowledge to paint which is the one thing that always bugged me about traditional art before. Definitely gonna try and do more finished work in oil, it's so tactile and delicious.
Also playing around a lot more with graphic design elements as opposed to just rendering everything representationally, it's an exciting new frontier!
And that's all! Have fun, hopefully I'll have something else to post before November, haha.
