Rotopolpress Groupshow: Supervillain
(Click on it to see it bigger.)
As mentioned in my previous post... I was asked by Rotopolpress to be part in their annual Group Show which opens the 25th of November. I was really excited and spent some time thinking which kind of picture I wanted to draw...I decided to draw a more subtle villian, who might have good intentions but does bad things nevertheless. Maybe a ghost of the forest who is angry about human beings destroying her forest and killing its inhabitants. So she turns them into trees and other plants.
Here are some sketches:
At first I wanted to draw a darker picture, but I had problems with the colors and didn't like the background in the first sketch, so I redrew the background and started new on the colors.When I finished the picture I was not sure if it was villainous enough and I guess that's mainly because of the colors. I think I have to create some dark illustrations next to practise that a bit more.
The Vernissage is this Friday, November 25, 2011 at 8 pm at
34119 Kassel, Germany.
Unfortunately I can't be there, but if you are in Kassel that day, don't miss it!
Thanks to Michael for answering all my questions so patiently. I feel really honored to be a part in this Groupshow!
