Man-oh-man! With the amount of freelance writing I’ve been doing, not to mention the doubled amount of chores I’ve been saddled with (shittons of trash, dishes, cooking and vacuuming since I’ve had my girlfriend crashing at my place over the weekend), I just haven’t had time to churn out the last two commissions that I need to get done!
The illustration above is a piece ordered by Jason for his girlfriend (her birthday is May 30th, so I thought I’d get his order done first). It should print out beauifully at 20″ x 30″ (larger, even, since the quality of the digital copy I sent him is pretty high res)!
Here, have some close-ups:
And, as usual, you can view my step by step process below:
There are obviously points where the piece was already starting to look good, and I could have stopped if I wanted to. But me being me, I always think that something doesn’t look or feel finished unless I’ve spent a shitload of hours on it, so I spent some time overlaying patterns on my solids, sprucing up boring areas of the image, and adding more intricate details to the illustration.
I think it turned out pretty good. :3
This image may actually remind you of Crazy, a piece I did back in March with the same sort of stunna-shade theme. This is usually because if I find something that works, I tend to stick with it when creating new pieces.
