Like so many of my projects this started
out as a simple character sketch I created ages ago.
I liked that original concept though — and so I began
the process of digitally painting over the sketch.
I struggled to get a color scheme and lighting I was happy
with and created MANY different ideas for it.
FINALLY, at long last I began settling on a silvery, black and white photo look — and that's when it started to "feel right."
Once I finally y had that worked out — the other
elements of the halo, banner, and lettering fell into place.
I call this one "The Watchman."
