I liked the idea of the dog's creepy master, some kind of apocaliptic reaper )
Another timelapse of my work process, this one is an illustration for a short story in Lineage universe, for my curret job ^_^
Here's a step by step progress of my older piece (took me some two weeks in evenings to finish)
I always flip the canvas to keep a fresh view on the work
(this time I kinda liked it flipped more than initial and decided to stick to this variant)
Lasso tool & pen tool +air brush for further detailing (works best for tech stuff imho)
Gradually building up detail, working B&W to be sure that values work fine
Got rid of some elements to add foreground objects
Coloring in Hard light, soft light, overlay blending layers
Didn't like the atmosphere, so I replaced the clouds and came up with a more gloomy color scheme. And also I didn't like the pier absorbing way too much space and attracting unnecessary attention while being quite a boring element. So I left more space for water and lowered the shore level.
In the end I painted a couple sci-fi flying things to enforce perspective and add some live and story to the piece. Currently I feel that the focus of the image came out being scattered and there are too many distracting elements, but still that was a nice practice.
