Title: ..// + resistance_x + //..
Name: shay casey
Country: USA
Software: Illustrator, Painter, Photoshop

I have been trying to loosen up my style and get a little more painterly over the past few years. Inspired by Berkley, Manchess, Frazetta, Berry and our own amazing Foster. Really just experimenting with differnet approaches and looks. Needless to say I have never been able to pull it off.

This image started with a fairly detailed value study and progressed into a detailed painting... then I took it into painter and just wrecked it with brushwork. Why is destruction so much fun! ; ) A huge waste of time maybe but having the detailed painting really helped me concentrate on the strokes and not worry about color or composition.

The final pass was to turn it into war propaganda... I love WWII posters. C&C welcome.

wow, this is kickass! I really love the propaganda meets concept art with a side of typography :D Awesome flow and brush strokes!

Interesting approach to this piece 7. In doing it it this way you have 2 good pieces in the end ha?! Nice destructive technique. Well composed and suited to the WW theme.
