Here’s my next step in the collaborative project with Joel Searcy. I cycled through many different ideas before finding something I liked. I started with the obvious dragon or monster destroying the city or a machine rising from the dark ages, until I started sketching an organic castle/tree growing behind the walls. The crucified robot was just icing on the cake. I reigned myself in at the end just to see what he may want to add. It’s kinda hard to stop when things are flowing. I’ve got so many ideas of where to go next but I want each of us to contribute something throughout the process. I could easily finish up the drawing and begin painting the background if left to my own devices.
