Matt- that's from "Say Anything"
Here is the final for an illustration I worked on in seeecret. I spent one day sketching concepts for the creature(s) and two days painting it up for the "your last days" contest over at Deviant Art. I went with a reclamation of nature kind of theme, like those nature-taking-over-the-city illustrations you always see. I decided to take that idea and make it, you know, all bad ass. I did totally forget to put a tribal tattoo on the beasts arm. Oh, and a scar above his right eye. Fuck, I didn't put a single pocket or belt in the image either. Concept art fail!
I basically took my last illustration for Mike Bierek's class and gave it another go, putting everything I learned about arranging your values into one whirl-wind reinterpretation. Pretty fun. I included a couple detail shots too. I accidentally down-sized this image from 4995px wide to 1000px. Freaked out, blew it back up and realized my loose chalk-only approach rendered the misstep irrelevant. I literally lost nothing
One more on the way...
