“Dammit. It’s raining,” said Trilobite Boy. He sat for a while thinking of her, the rain pattering on his cephalon and soaking his socks. Then he flapped his fossil wings and headed over the city.
This painting was so much fun to do, and I learned a lot about using ArtRage while I did it. I tried to keep my style loose, and just play with the digital paint. And thanks to Eric T. Jones for suggesting the Chuck Taylor's! Better than combat boots.
The only part of this that was done in Photoshop, was I realized I had painted a decent sneaker on his left foot, but it was too small. I exported the file to Photoshop, used the selection brush to highlight it, and did a free transform to enlarge it, before importing it back into ArtRage.
There's been a lot of posts of this in-process, but here it is, finally completed. If you click here, you can go to my deviantArt gallery, where you can click again to get the super-big high-resolution picture.
It's also available in my print shop, as a postcard, greeting card and a variety of prints and framed art.
You can see the in-process stuff here.
You can see more about Trilobite Boy here.
What should I do next with this guy?
