Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
The question of the week is indeed: Who is watching the watchers?
This week we present you a proud son of Caliban, this character was created by Joshua Zanello and more information can be found on the character’s wiki here.
Living in a house with at least one other Dark Angel fanatic we can say this illustration was appreciated by more than just the artists of the studio.
Our kind meceanas was quite clear in what he wanted on his illustration so not much needs to be explained.
We provided the sketch a few weeks back and looking back upon the advancements made, it never seizes to amaze us what a difference some layers of colours bring in regards to depth and life. These little moments of revelation are one of the perks of working in this business. Our customers are happy when we manage to bring their vision alive, but in all honesty: it is still a rush to see that image that is locked up in your brain, slowly starting to form on the screen or on the canvas. Living in this city, where an eclectic mix of medieval, Gothic, baroque and modern can be found everywhere, it would almost be blasphemous to not be able to do anything creative in this environment. If we need reference of some sorts, we just need to take a trip with a camera down to the city centre and we usually find what we need. So hopefully we can provide some own non-commissioned works soon, it has been a while since we posted anything like that.
On a different note: our first contributions to the Ars Scribendi contest are coming in on the blog here. The entries already look promising, we cannot wait to see what more we shall receive, after all the deadline is still more than a month away.
Looks like summer is going to be bearable after all…
