The Others

Unused ideas for the cover. I'll be finishing these off one by one. You can see some of them are farther along than the others

wow, they're all very nice! I'm especially fond of nr 2 and 3. :D
I think itwas a good decision to choose a motive that's more zoomed in.

Ahhh...so awesome.

I have a question, I hope you don't mind answering haha. :)

I've noticed that a lot of your art--and a lot of others' art (janaschi in particular)--incorporate strong value contrasts. All of "The Others" have light/luminescent skin in contrast to the background/situation. Do you consciously think of this when/before you paint? Is that an objective for the complete piece?

Thanks. :)

I think the first one if my favorite because of her emotive face. They are all very beautiful though. I can't wait to see more finished art from you.

Yihyoung, it's nice to have that contrast between dark and light, and I think it creates interest very easily. It depends on which painting I'm doing, but yes, that contrast between figure and background is definitely a goal. I think about how can I make her/him/it stand out from the background? Whether it's value contrast or color contrast, I utilize both. You can also apply it to situations when you want things to recede into the background.

Thanks a lot everyone!:]
