So I've been messing around with color palettes a lot lately, trying to get a good mix of balance and mood in my work.
I call this piece James Hetfield. I doubt I'll be submitting this to the portal anytime soon. It just doesn't feel finished to me, and the look of the radiator heater in the back is really bugging me (if I do finish it, I'll probably just remove the heater altogether), but I am really happy with how the colors have turned out, so I'm sharing it here for feedback. I used a small palette (here) and blended layer upon layer using opacity levels mostly set to either 10, 20 or 40.
I do plan to do more environment type pieces, but they're going to be strictly related to a comic that I've been working on.
As you can probably guess, I was watching a lot of old Looney Tunes when I started this.
