Man time goes fast.

Man time goes fast. It has been too long since my last post.

As usual I have been very busy-- let see over the last few weeks I've done a movie poster for an Independent film called 2000 Man, a cover for a comic book project ( I can't say much about it other then it involves zombies), a cover for Kobold quarterly a D&D magazine as well as a cover for an up coming Clockwork Mage gazetteer for the same publisher. ( I will be posting these in the coming weeks).

I have also been working on the t-shirt project I described a few posts back, Which has been major project going through several revisions.The image took longer then I thought it would. In part do to the size and complexity of the image. It was a bit of a mess. I have mentioned before that I tend to work in a kind of organic way, just letting the image kind of grow in free form way and there is a stage where chaos rules, with each element of the image on a different layers and some elements having multiple versions, and the highlights and shadow of each those elements and versions also on its own layer, and because of the size and complexity of this image and the limited ram on my computer I had to create some elements in separate documents and and imported them into the larger piece as I went along. On top of that the image also went through major revisions from the initial concept to the finished piece. One of the major changes was in the main character featured on the shirt. Originally it was to be a post apocalyptic, ice age, road warrior chick. But, after they saw her, they thought she set the wrong mood -- These guys wanted something more ironic, something that on first glance looks like the iconic sci-fi novel cover, but a second glance or closer examination is poking a little fun at the genre. So instead the warrior chick became a...... a sort of post apocalyptic ice age Jedi/ biker dude eating beef jerky with a pet mutant polar bear cub....... well, you just have to see it and that will just have to wait until I have permission to post the final image-- though I gotta say its pretty cool. I can show you the the original image of the warrior chick, I have change the back ground so as not to violate the NDA agreement with DK2G.
