Crazy assignment for real money.
On a sunday a few months back I recieved a call about painting the cover to a prop for a movie. The deadline was the next Sunday. So I had one week to create this paintings and send it off (digitally). That was the tightest deadline I have worked with and I created my best Illustration yet. BAM.
I have to say that it's success was solely based on the intentional areas of no detail to play off the form and composition. Now I just need to replicate this idea consistently well.
