A few of my fellow TAD students and I found some time in our busy schedules this spring to have a few weekend photoshop speed-painting sessions. We would come up with a simple theme and then spend an hour sketching something out. Here's one of my more successful attempts from back in March. The prompt was: "apocalyptic legless warrior sings".
I was playing with a few composition ideas about shape welding and massing that I got from James Gurney. It's got kind of a "Godfather goes to Rio" look to it that makes me laugh.
