Here is another addition to my editorial portfolio. Sometimes it just feels like you put yourself out there and get stabbed in the back. Another commentary on how we treat each other.

Illustration Process

This started as a quick thumbnail sketch as I was working on another project. It didn’t work for that project, but I liked the idea enough to finish it. The process was a fairly typical, I sketched over the top of the pencils with my Cintiq to tighten it and then I inked it with some of Frenden’s inking brushes. Then add in the flats, highlights, shadows, radial color gradients, and finish it off with some textures.
