 Illustration of an (augmented human) ex-military outlaw making his last stand after destroying some evil robots in a sea of fire. Before releasing new work I stare at it for DAYS after its done to try to find mistakes, sometimes i find structural/compositional issues i obviously cant change. But for this one, i thought the original version was TOO dark in some areas… i didnt use any references for this, it was all from my mind, so you have to strive for perfection with details. so without going george lucas (starwars) with the changes, i made some lighting adjustments to the rim, bounce, background and fill light and took some of the harshness off the occlusion shadows.

This is ‘CAI’! an animation concept art piece i designed for a production company who saw the ‘button” character i designed for a previous client (See here: http://www.maijintheartist.com/art/button/ ) and they wanted to create something similar to that but with its own distinct style. In the design brief they tasked me to mix anime, disney, and hip hop styles into the characters. it was fun to develop my cartoon style a bit more with this project. I did several characters for them, so look out for those!
