Sector X

Here is the finished version of SECTOR X. Between yesterday and today I merely added some more fine details (and decided to nix the textures that I'd been overlaying and paint my own crackly finish--I like the way that turned out). It's a fun little illustration... continuing on my journey into distortion and emphatic color usage. I also _specifically_ set him in a place, vague as it is, because I think I often overlook location. I like how it becomes more symbolic than real.

Also of note, this is a portrait of a handsome gentleman that I found pictures of online on one of those myspace type friend networks. I used three photos from his album to collage this piece together, so thank you to "Sector X" for the lovely source material.

Well, if you happened upon my profile by accident and truly know "Sector X" than I'd say it is a small world... Awesome! I feel spiritual now.

I especially like the colors in this one. Particularly the pink around the eyes. :)

Gorgeous hands as always. I love the cat shape and how you abstracted it to look like architecture!
