I have to admit; people can still surprise me. Here I am, sitting at my desk and I was drawing a blank. So I decided to change locales and took a lunch at Starbucks.
I decided to draw a car, but from the inside. I used to own a 66 mustang, which seemed like the perfect vehicle; simple and purpose built.
Of course, people started to crowd around. I’m used to it at this point and most are willing to let you work in peace and simply watch.
This one guy was VERY persistent. To be honest, he was getting on my nerves! But I stayed calm. I was in a public space after all. My desk was starting to seem like an oasis at this point.
The car that lead to the image I drew #rita
So…I explained. Turns out, he owns a 66 mustang. And you know what? He bought the drawing on the spot. I was a little surprised. But I learned a lesson. From now on, I’ll think “customer interaction” BEFORE I think “interruption”.
This project came to me courtesy of the #sciencechannel, lol. And Marvel Comics. NOT the MCU.
I wanted to show the Silver Surfer contemplating riding space/time via gravity waves. And where would he find the best ones? At the event horizon of a black hole.
I’m not going to lie; I did a few thumbnails for this one. Multiple light sources, whether I wanted to stylize or try to get more realistic. At one point I was going to simply have him sitting on his board as a smaller figure in front of a feeding blackhole. I decided against that.
I finally just had him standing on a asteroid. It worked better for me. Hope you like it as well.
