Old Salt

Here's another new illustration for my newly styled portfolio. For this one, I wanted to try to do two things I haven't done much of. The first thing was to do a subtle monochromatic color scheme, almost black & white. I'm fairly happy with how that turned out. The second thing I wanted to try was water. I think I did it well enough for the purpose of this illustration, but I probably have a lot more to learn about rendering water.


  1. I like it!
    especially the old man... heh.

  2. Wow this piece speaks to me! In an old man and the sea monster sort of way! Cool grey is so cool! Nice value range! Another Kick ass piece amigo.

  3. Fantastic monster! Perhaps some reflections or translucency in the water? Looks great though.

  4. I would agree with more of an indication of reflections would be cool...but it's a nice piece! You've found a way to combine a retro and contemporary look.

  5. Thanks for all your comments!

    After a couple of days away from this piece, returning with fresh eyes, and some good suggestions, I'm going to take another pass at the water before I call this one ready for the portfolio.

    I'll post it again when I've finished it.
