Head poppin' fun!
This is my piece for Outsider Art this week where the topic was "kiddie cage match".
Usually with these weekly projects I have a direction I want to go or something I want to experiment with but this week I was lucky enough just to get a sketch. The colors were especially tough. The more I worked in Flash the more they boiled down to oranges and purples. I like the contrast, I just wish I had a better mental color image from the start. I also debated about the blood. I was going to tone it down - maybe erase it from the goons face? Too much? In the end I left it all - the sprays and splatters were just part of the fun so even if it weakens the image (or turns people off) it sorta represents my original drawing. So what have we learned? Violence = fun.
