Devils. Don't you just love them? Well, I do anyway! Always enjoy depicting 'the dark one' when I get the opportunity, and this commission proved no exception. Published in the Christmas edition of the Radio Times this week, it accompanies a new series of the show "Old Harry's Game", set in Hell, where Satan decides to ban Christmas in the first of two episodes. The opportunity to depict a grumpy Satan festooned with Christmas decorations was simply too good to miss!
There were a few variants along the way, mainly a couple of simpler versions where the background content was reduced to concentrate visual focus on the head, but they did not quite have the overall atmosphere I was after. All three shown for reference. A big thank you to the Radio Times as it was a pleasure to work on from start to finish. Published and out this week in the double Christmas edition of the Radio Times.
