Poster Challenge: Fighting for nothing

Full composite poster using free assets from a limited pool and color pallet (a color and it’s opposite alongside black and white). I chose red and green so I could dip into ochre and pale whites for the skin and hair:

I like how it turned out. It’s a little rushed but I’ll clean it up at some point XD.

I blended down an elephants face on the arm to make that scaling and leathery effect. The stuff coming out from behind his is a mixture of recolored clouds and underwater bubbles. I used text function to make the command prompt look on his face and hands. I did a lot of dynamic lighting to make the base image blend better. I recolored the eyes (because that’s fun for me) to a grey-green and used paint to suggest face-paint.

 

Artwork: Pisces

The second piece of my Zodiac project. After Leo (found here:https://bluebeard-art.com/2017/11/29/artwork-zodiac-series-1/) I really wanted to clean up the line-work and composition. This almost ended up looking a little too clean for the style, I think. This is probably the first time where I’ve had a reverse fore-ground, where the background is so noisy that it draws attention to the undetailed focus of the painting, which is a weird but kinda cool effect. Sorry about my shadow on the bottom of the picture, I have a very dark room and the light is currently out, so I had to use the window!

Concept: Pisces are all about finding that one person who makes them feel whole, there yin or yang, so to speak. To a true Pisces, life may not seem worth living until they find that person or thing that drives them. You know what they say, life was built for two.
