More from the Fight Club

What I'm trying to get out of these fight club pieces are different looks and styles and not to mention a whole, complete picture. Not the usual here is portrait of so and so, here is colored picture of character. But a whole complete illustration. I never do that so I wanted to make myself, on these at least, do that.

What I wanted to get out of this one was a "retro" feel. I got that but I missed the one I was aiming for entirely. This of course makes me sad but the image itself makes me happy which is why it was allowed to stay the way it is. I am really into simplification and shapes lately. And yeah, she totally looks Jetsons!

What I wanted to get out of this one was an ink painting sort of feel which rapidly disappeared once I started seriously working on it. I think the only way I will ever get a sumi-e feel is to actually sit down and use my sumi ink and get over mr. computer's omnipresence in my life. The background is a heavilly altered and filtered photo, the stars are a brush I made with blur! And he himself looks like an ultra-gloss toki-doki reject. But... I like my composition and I like his shiny head. I also really like how I did the glints on the swords. Gotta keep that in my mental know-how book!
