Like so many of my projects this started out as a sketch from my sketchbook - created ages ago.
I liked the character 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 had that — the final elements of the halo, banner,
and lettering fell into place.
I call this one "The Watchman."
