It came from beyond the moon

Well I opted out of taking any more progress shots of the space creature painting. I felt it would be better to just keep my head down and work on it. Overall I’m pretty happy with it, somehow the process never yields the results that are pictured in my mind’s eye. I was trying to stay loose with some of the elements, saving the most detail for the womans face but I kept finding myself adding more and more washes of color subtly changing things and tightening up everything. I guess some of that comes from working with pen and ink and wanting perfection. Anyways enjoy.
