Logan's Run!

Apparently every time I decide to challenge myself and change how my work looks I turn to Logan's Run! Not on purpose mind you but that was just something that I just now noticed as I started to type. Odd how those things just seem to pop into your head. I was recently at odd with myself and my work and felt that when I was working in one style, I was wishing I was working in another. If you don't know, I usually bounce back and forth between looks depending on the job at hand but more and more I have been drawn to a "comic book" feel and being very graphic with my shadow and light shapes and wondered if I could use them in a digital painting as well. I decided to try it out and found a Logan's Run picture that I had started a while back and never actually completed. All the leg work was done and all I had left to do was actually sit down and actually draw and paint it. But now I was just going to really delve in and draw it and then color the drawing. I just had to be careful of my layers and it would be easy, right? Well, it may not have been easy but I kind of liked not knowing exactly what was going to happen next so to speak.

I have to admit that I was very pleased with the results. It still looks like my work but more "graphic" if that makes any sense.
