An alien mugshot I did for ImagineFX Challenge #312: Wanted Dead or Alive. My recently-developed addiction to Mass Effect 2 has finally resulted to something productive.
This is, however, more MIB-looking which is fine by me. It's an alien, it's a mugshot, and I like how it turned out. I enjoyed making this piece which will add to my sorely lacking if not completely non-existent portfolio of sci-fi stuff.
Real-life alien used for reference. Hehehe.
Digital - Photoshop
No custom brushes used this time. Just good ol' Photoshop chalk.
Dirty paper texture used for the wall.
Many many hours.
The style apparent in this painting is very different from the one that's evident in my previous work. That's probably because of the different set of tools and the glazing technique which I have used here. I also utilized a little chromatic aberration.
