eye see through you

Something I'm working on for art
walk, and while the final probably
won't look like this, I wanted to
show it at this stage, because I
think it looks pretty fucking cool.
There's something about the sickly
contrast around her eye that I just
love, and will be sad to see go.

Thanks guys! :)

Robb, it's just a panel of a larger sequential piece... I hope.

Jeremy, it's drawn with those big black graphite pencils and a few layers of Photoshop airbrush. Amazingly simple.

It looks like it belongs on the cover of a Neil Gaiman book.

Now I can't wait to see the rest of it.

excellent Sail! Maybe if you like the contrast, don't get rid of it! It's great!

Well, it's only a part of a larger thing and it all has to go together... so, the whole thing is in flux and I don't know how it's going to be when it's done. But the way this came out has made me rethink the aesthetic of the project.

I think I'm going to make this version into a banner at the top of the blog, and in my forum signatures as a link to the blog. So, it'll still exist regardless of what changes need to be made to it for the final pieces.

Jim, I promise nothing.

Very cool, Ester. Reminds me a lot of Ashley Wood, and well, I think we all know I adore Ashley's work.

and don't worry, I'm more than capable of copy/pasting it. :)

Man, every time I see this in your sig at the conclave I drool a little. You need to make this in to a 6` wide poster. do it.

That'd be really cool... probably really expensive, but really cool. I might look into that for the August Art Walk when my studio gets the entire main hall of the floor we're on.
