Another interior illustration for SciFi Freedom ezine story, edition #6. Titled: The Liar. The issue will be out this month I think so keep your eyes peeled!
Here is the artwork.. Starting with my final pencil sketch, a small acrylic colour rough and the final oil painting. I think I lost something in the translation from the pencil sketch to the final painting however!
Something a little different this post as I have painted a portrait of a historically real figure for a steampunk short story set in Shanghai in the late 18th century. It will be the interior illustration for the online sf magazine, SciFi Freedom, issue 5 to be published in September. More details once it’s out!
The final image is 95% oil painting with a little digital tweaking for levels and adding the ‘Wetzler’ details around the lenses of the goggles.
