This is a piece I did for the World of Warcraft tcg a while back. In it we have a Worgen (WoW-speak for werewolf) priest gathering information from a ghost. It's kind of a strange scene for me but I had fun with it. Anyway, about a month after I turned it in I got a call from the the Art Director. Turns out they had given me reference for the wrong kind of ghost and it had to be changed...
...a lot. I was able to repaint it digitally which saved me a lot of time but this one still stands as the biggest alteration I've ever done. I'm a little sad the other ghost will never see print but hey, that's what blogs are for.
11 x 14 in., oil/digital
The alteration is seamless. It looks like you did it in oils. Great job!ReplyDelete
Yeah, what Matt said. I couldn't tell that it was a digital revision at all. Really nice stuff.ReplyDelete
That is a hefty revision though. I've had to do one or two of those before for WoW ;)
Funny, it's major-revision week. Steve B just posted yesterday about a huge alteration he did. But he went to giclee print and then oils over that.ReplyDelete
Avoiding the smoothy-smooth digital look must have taken some concentration - this looks totally natural. Nice work.
I hate you for being able to do this Chris. I hate you even more for it being as good as it is.ReplyDelete
Thanks guys! Sometimes it's painful to admit how much photoshop has saved my bacon.ReplyDelete
Steve - Thanks man. Your kick-ass Badass revision puts mine to shame and really inspired this post. By the way I'm with you, I'm really glad you didn't paint over Skeletor.
Impressive alteration job Chris. I do like the first ghost but the girl ghost also have a nice feel. The difference really creates two very different moods.ReplyDelete
Well done sir.
God damn. I'm with Tyler, I think they're both super successful and it's cool seeing the different moods side by side. Beautiful piece, man.ReplyDelete
