Bros, bros, bros.
How are you? I hope you are well. I am well, and so I wish the same for you. I am living every week like it's Shark Week.
Getting close to the end, here. Yep. These are the last two aside from the cover and it's colored, +text version, and they may be my favorites. One definitely is, and the other I am simply partial to. Perhaps it is also good? YOU DECIDE.
A simple image, to be sure. However, I think that I struck the appropriate mood for the scene, and so it pleases me. This was a lot of fun to do, because it was almost entirely tonal with very little actual detail to it, so I could do some more "painting" than I do in the more elaborate compositions. I say "painting," because I apply the graphite with a paintbrush. My original thumbnail for this had Devil's Reef in the background, but I took that out because it made the lighting I wanted a little strange. I think this works better. Nothing like a nice horizon line. This isn't really from any particular part of the story, but, like the one with the little houses, is more of a general interpretation of the story.
And the next.
Here is Obed Marsh convening with the Deep Ones. From the thumbnail, I knew this was going to be the best one, and I think that is because it hits a good level of both atmosphere and detail. Ah, ah, I am pleased with this one. I don't have all that much to say about it. Maybe you do? ONLY YOU KNOW.
Did you guys go to James Jean's opening in NYC? I did. Man was it crowded! I wanted to cry a little bit, but not from the crowd. From the paintings, the paintings. Man. That dude. Man.
I have a rather tentative hold over Thesis and Illustrated Book next semester. I may be doing some normal stuff, but with a little twist. I already want to start working on Illustrated Book.
I hope this New Year is turning out as well as you had hoped.
