My last project was an illustration to the greek myth of Oedipus Rex. I thought it would be interesting to show the process step by step, similar to my last year's professor Yuko Shimizu
The first step is brainstorming
I then narrowed it down to a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to create
My main influences were the William Blake show which I then just saw, and the ALIEN movie poster, since my piece was meant to be a poster.
In the first stage I put down the composition and started painting it out
After more work and critique I realized that the figure needed to be adjusted
Next I changed the figure to give it more purpose and drama
So here is the finished product (not the best photo though).
