Tai Chi

Another commission done for QuarterCycle Productions. I didn't want to focus too much on the background since it's supposed to be all about the character and his personality. I hope he comes across as asian since the comic deals heavily in martial arts.

I've been looking at a lot of Asaf & Tomer Hanuka's work today. I've actually been a fan for a few years but only got to really look at how great the quality is these past few days. and by great, I mean GORGEOUS. It's such beautiful linework with simple gradients as the majority of the colors; no highlights, sometimes shadows. I think it's that wonderful simplicity that's the key.

I'd also like to thank Randy for his brutal honesty whenever critiquing my work. Especially from this past weekend. It's a constant push to drive myself harder into future pieces.

I've been a big fan of Tomer and Asaf for quite a while. I'm amazed at how often I spot their work in magazines. I love how they can make something grotesque and beautiful at the same time.
