The “Skulls…” image is a wrap. Somewhat of a more time consuming exercise than I initially anticipated, but the moment of inspiration and the actualization were two separate things. The young boy still lurking about inside was all, “Hell yeah, a field of skulls…cause…WHY NOT!?!”. The adult, after having attained a field of skulls was all, “…”.
So a background splash of MUSTARD. Skulls and sandwiches, okay…
Followed by a week of staring blankly at the screen, whereupon I began applying large fields of color and attacking it with some very large texture brushes.
Happy with the feel, but wanting a bit more richness, I bumped up the vibrancy a bit and BAM! Both the young boy and the adult were satisfied.
