AaD process video
Hey world, how's it going?
I thought I'd explain the aesthetic choices and endeavors for this most recent piece here. First off, I wanted to make a badass image with a wicked creature. Fair enough, right? I drew this guy a while ago but haven't really touched the poor thing since:
As you can see, I still have a lot of detail to add to the digital painting (it's very much a work in progress). Second, I wanted the viewer to be more involved with the image - I wanted drastic perspective, action, foreshortening, all that fun stuff. So I made the format require scrolling to really get a sense of how dangerous this creature is. At full size, no matter what screen resolution, I want the viewer to have to scroll up and down, as if they were looking up at the jumping defender, out at the attacker, and down at their crushed body. We'll see if it works.
Any suggestions or comments are always welcome!
