DJ Goldy and Mister Critical - Muted in Wonderland

This was a lot of fun as I'm a fan of 'Adventure Time' when I started on this I was told something like the cartoon with the boy and dog for style and it had no title, and I suggested a few things, and 'Muted in Wonderland' got a positive response and the first thing that came into my head was the two DJ's in a field with some hills and icy mountains in the background, and have the characters in muted colours while the background was bright and vibrant and this was the end result.

Then I was asked to add some craziness and odd creatures to it, so I did.

Ricki Rawness Space Raps Cover Art

For Ricki Rawness - Space Raps, which will be released as a series of 4 EP's, decided to go for something i had never tried before, a quadriptych and this happened, for influence i wanted something in the 2001 vein to begin with and get odder as it progresses across, and here's a look at the four parts as standalone pieces.

Runaways Ink/Colour

This has been in my fave's on DeviantArt for three years finally got around to inking and colouring it, on my lunch breaks in work, mostly. I'm happy with it, the roughness is due to being A4 and on photocopier paper, usually use bristol but it was just for fun/practice had fun with the coloring of Karolina, the light trail in pastel rainbow shades was a joy to do.

Stoker Poster

First things first Park Chan Wook is one of the best directors around at present in my opinion. His vengeance trilogy is a rare thing in trilogies, it starts well, has an excellent middle chapter, and manages to finish with a visually stunning final chapter, his other movies I've also liked, was a bit hesitant about his english language debut, but after watching 'Stoker' that hesitation is a memory.

So i wanted to make this poster in a Saul Bass style, which i felt was appropriate due to the many nods to Hitchcock throughout the movie, from swinging lights in a cellar to a shower scene to a room with a collection of stuffed birds, it felt right to do this poster as a homage.

Colour Swatches

Got asked how i create colour swatches for photoshop so thought I'd post about it. I keep a folder on my desktop of images I like the colours of, also on instagram and deviant i like/fave images i like the colour scheme of and use them to create the swatches, using the eyedropper tool and clicking into the colour swatch window on the side of photoshop and saving the aco file when happy with the selection. Here's an example of the swatches made from pics from instagram.

And here's a link to download a zip of those colour swatches.
