It's been a while since I posted anything here. I've been a bit busy of late. I've started to go back to school (20 years after graduating high school, no less!) taking a couple of art classes. I've decided to go to a state school, mainly because they're one of the few to have a major in sequential art (comic books). Also, even this late in life, I'd like some sort of general education along with my art training, a general education I would NOT get at the first school I chose.
These are part of my final for my Color Theory class. I had to come up with a theme; I chose movie monsters. I'm still not finished with the series, but this is what I have so far. All were done in gouache on bristol board.
Godzilla and King Kong (2005). Godzilla is obviously done with a monochromatic palette, while Kong is an achromatic palette.
Alien and Predator. These were done with limited palettes. The Alien was done with black, white, and two different blues and purple, while the Predator was done with the same palette, swapping out light green for purple.
The Thing (1982) and The Thing (1951). Both are done with a limited palette of light green and crimson, along with white and black.
Frankenstein's Monster and a zombie (from Zombi 2). Done with a limited primary palette of one hue each of blue, yellow, and red, along with white and black.
Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. Freddy is done with two different reds, white and black, while Jason is the same with blues.
I don't like being a bastard, but they leave me no choice.
