Here's a digital illustration I did a while back for Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. As I drew it, I became very interested in vertical and horizontal lines and the shapes these created around the figures. It became a sort of game in which I tried to create a realistic painting based on a more abstract composition. Tonight I took it step further and quickly rendered the painting as a complete abstraction. What do you think?

Darwin Garrison. It's based on one of his short stories, entitled Kyrie's Gauntlet. I happened to take a look at it the other day ended up tinkering with it in photoshop. I made just a few minor changes. In particular, I added a hint of green cloud forms behind Kyrie. I think the complementary colors of the cloud and the red jumpsuit help create greater emphasis and energy.

I snuck in a little painting time here and there between other projects and finally have this one close to a finish . . . or in other words, I better stop before I completely ruin it. I've enjoyed working with black and white and examining the power of values. I've also incorporated a lot of texture into this one, most of which isn't very evident in the photo.
