The sketch for this has been sitting in my sketchbook for AGES.
Since I’m planning to do a series of illustrations/paintings, I finally decided to break it out and color it for practice.
I thought it turned out okay.
As for the last piece, I promised I’d elaborate on it more and I shall.
The last piece, The Caves of the Slothful, is the uncolored version of official artwork for Perdition. If you donated enough to our kickstarter, there’s a chance you might be getting a print of that very piece.
It was done, as most of our work is, in the style of Gustave Dore, with EXTREME EXTENSIVE HATCHING.
The thing about hatching is that it always takes forever. Always.
The process demands meticulousness and precision by its very nature, and so what’d normally take five hours goes into days and days and days, because if you hack it, or do a slapdash job of it, it immediately shows.
And I just had to pick a dark environ for the piece, didn’t I.
