Here's a flyer for a show Hellfire Red is putting on called 'A Desert Trip' featuring a screening of the movie "High Society: A Pot Boiler" and sets by Yawning Man and Sasquatch. I've been a fan of Yawning Man for a few years now, ever since a friend gave me a bottleg DVD he recorded of one of their sets he caught while on a west coast business trip. I had that recording way before their records and played it contstantly. I did some research for the drawing and tried to make it as good as possible, scanned it then built the border and "eye rays" in Illustrator. After that I imported them into Photoshop and masked them over and around the Octopus. Sometimes I get the urge to do a piece in Black and white before I finished the composition and tones then convert it to color. I did that here, just to get the whole thing together and then switch to color mode. I think that method helps me focus on some projects better than others. I'm still working on my color choices and skills but I think this one worked out well.
Close to done with tones:
