Another large scale piece in my “Satanic Artwork” series… Stained Glass – so gorgeous, and so hard to make “right”!
Part one of two of the sketch covers for the Kickstarter to LORDS OF THE COSMOS #1 which you can check out here !
A detour into ancient Chinese Mythology with the fabled “Monkey King”, Sun Wukong, of the tale Journey to the West.
Most of the art for this character is very humanoid, and I wanted to go real monkey, which was visually cool, but really hard with the odd anatomy, especially on the hand-like feet.
This turned out with the low light extreme lights and darks looks that I intended from the pencils. I always have thought the low light night vision images of soldiers were very dramatic, and I wanted to capture that here. The wrecked building silhouette was something I experimented with in the M.D. Geist art I did here a few months ago. This building outline is more of an integral part of the composition on this piece and this time I went farther with that process than I did on the M.D. Geist image. I think the building outlines in solid black technique is a nice new addition to my inking style.
Love the Predator movies so this was a treat to do. From a pencil detailing standpoint the Predator’s armor was a challenge and his hounds were complex as anything you could imagine! Overall the difficulty on this pencil artwork was high, which made the final outcome that much more satisfying!
The hardest part was the foilage of all things, but I went with some outlines and silhouettes to save time and make it look sharper.
THE HUNT IS ON!!!
