Well, Halloween is about 7 months away, but the monsters came out ahead of schedule! I always enjoyed designing halloween themed illustrations, so when I was asked to come up with some, I went to work immediately. In the latest commission by DJ Steve-S, four characters were designed. Three dressed in their devil costumes and one spinning on a demonic looking set of turntables. Since the sketches were approved last night, they are well under way to being colored. I will work on adding some cool lighting effects when I get started. A cool tip for great lighting reference is to take some pictures of yourself with a flashlight lit underneath your face in a dark room. I took over 15 photos and ended up with so many great shots. The toughest part of coloring for me has always been figuring out interesting light sources and how the shadows are cast. I am really looking forward to coloring these samples up. Stay tuned for updates.
