This one was so much fun to make. I started out with a simple sketch and worked on the idea long enough to add enough crazy shit going on everywhere. After that, I transferred it to Arches paper and mixed up the most fitting maroon I could make. From there, it came to life on its own. There's currently no story for this character, but let me just say he is covering his eyes because he's afraid. Unfortunately for him, he can see with his mind..
I popped onto periscope for a brief time while painting this one and got loads of positive feedback. It's hard to tell in this picture, but I used the foil paper again to make the floating orbs around him really pop in the light. I'm posting a time-lapse video shortly after this that should show them off nicely. Make sure to check it out!
