My favorite Movie 1987 " The Predator"

Oh Man how I love this flick. I don't think it is possible to get sick of this movie and I could not resist creating this faux movie poster. The premise was for me to go " full struzan" and do a Study using his technique. Well, as per usual, I went "whole hog" and created my version of the movie poster for this classic. I managed to squeeze the whole cast in except for the general. Even Hopper made it !;)
Anyways, here is the image and some process shots.

Asag, Son of Anu. Utukku Demon

Hey Gang,

Sorry I missed posting in February but on the bright side, I've been swamped with work and as a freelancer, that is not necessarily a bad thing;) So for today I am posting a personal piece that I finished up and submitted to the art book for the upcoming Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo.

This piece is a depiction of a Sumerian Demon called an Utukku.  I recently had an opportunity to illustrate one for an unreleased project and this image is based on one of my unused concepts. The final design that I ended up doing for my client ended up quite different than this version. I had an unused concept sitting around that I really liked so I asked for and received permission from my client to polish up that concept and that is what you are seeing here today.
