All in all, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, it's really close to the original idea I had in my mind of "robot-with-gun-briefcase-and-red-streak-over-eyes." By the way, that darn red streak took something like 15 tries (I wasn't really keeping track, but it was a lot) to get right.
Now I have to figure out what to add digitally. I don't know about you, but I'm thinkin' lens flare. (sarcasm)
And here's a little bonus because I'm feeling generous:
A book cover I painted for Illustration 4, for a sci-fi-ish children's chapter book from the mid-1960s about a kid from another world who falls through a portal into hicksville USA, and hijinks ensue. My professor assigned the book.
Also part of the assignment were 2 black-and-white interior illustrations and chapter heading illustrations:
The chapter headings are still in .psd format, so I can't post them as is. I'm arranging them all on two seperate sheets and adding the chapter titles next to each of them. I'm almost done but may need to make some changes before I print them, so I don't want to convert them to jpeg just yet. Keep an eye out for them on my future blog posts!
See y'all later!
