Monster Maiden #2 – color scheme

Monster-Maiden-2-going-into-color-3-copyWorking on getting some color in there without losing the subtlety of the original B&W file. Some more tinkering and I can move into the painting stage. I really want to finish it before February.

    1. I think there is an element of that, which is even more pronounced in the state it’s in now, but it should be apparent that it’s at least 50% ludicrous. Remember my original intent is to use gratuitous boobs to get recognition from the second tier art world (the first tier is inaccessible to me), and putting grotesque monster heads on the bodies is subverting that. That’s the super simple read. I’m very fond of ambiguity, and always have been, so just using such a tactic is too shallow to hold my interest for more than a single afternoon. Ambiguity raises questions and opens possibilities, whereas just hammering home a certain message or tactic merely attempts to persuade people of a foregone conclusion. I prefer exploration to fortification.
