Here's one that I've been picking away at for awhile in between a few other projects. After working on a few EK pieces that were a little more conceptual in nature it was nice to get back to the free form, and work on something that was looser and a little more impromptu. This one started as a rough character sketch that I thought looked like a turtle, so everything grew out of that. There is some symbolism involved but it is secondary to the image and I won't go into that here.

  1. Love this work! hey these blended backgrounds, are they digital or do you work them up in paint?

  2. Thanks for the kind words Peter. As for the backgrounds, they are created digitally with a brush in photoshop.

    Take care - Derek
