Stephen Huczek. I've been doing quick 30min. sessions for these sketches, but this one intrigued me enough to want to go digital with it. He's a combo of; Mouse/Rabbit - TreeFruit - and Lamp/Bulb. After finishing him up, I also kinda got on the eye lens, goggle trip for a bit, and did a couple more with switching out the Anima role, but this was the first. It's important to explore versions of a concept, if a particular idea or portion is successful. I'll sometimes take a chunk of content or technique and mash it up with a few past ones while it's fresh in my mind.
I've never been the biggest fan of painting digitally, but I explored a bit more with this Rat Droid, having some time between jobs, and I think I can get a relatively close version of a wash out of the thing..? I can't see myself ever painting a finished digital piece any time soon, but there are an amazing amount of fairly simple techniques that make it grotesquely tempting. Don't think I ever really realized how easy it is, and now I kind of wish I could go back thinking that way.. =) Stay Tuned !!
