In progress: new commission piece
I'm working on a new commission piece, a pretty large one. Basically, what the customer wants is a painting of them and their motorcycle, and for the background to be a collage of all the places they've visited on the bike. After many tries at different compositions and thumbnails, I came to a conclusion. the piece is going to look "collage-like" no matter what I do. So, with that in mind, I just started laying the shapes of the places in like puzzle pieces, not worrying about what makes sense but just what looks cool. Here's a couple progress shots I've been taking along the way. I'll post the final when I'm finished.
