To anyone tuning in - a belated happy New Year! Its been a little busy here with one thing and another so no time for blog entries - woeful I know! I've just restarted a couple of experimental pieces that were lurking away in the background, finally making a concerted effort to get them finished. I played around quite a lot with colour on this illustration. It still amazes me how much the effect of colour and specifically the tone of colour has on the atmosphere of an image. I preferred the green and the orange versions and opted to push the orange one to finished artwork. The theme is based on a lighthearted article I found on 'military paranoia' where the patients in question have no reason to be afraid, but still have an irrational fear of military persecution! As this is an experimental image it may get some tweaking to push it further.
