BloodRoyale by FabianMonk BloodRoyale by FabianMonk
Total brainfart. So this originally started while I was trying to build myself some new brushes in CS 5. That never ended up happening though, just kinda spiralled off from there.

I think it shows that I didn't plan this image in any way, but basically just kept tacking things on. It was fun to just randomly paint and experiment though, so I just went with it.

The typography was not designed by me, but rather by the highly educated Shane Long ( [link] ). The type has also been misappropriated, it was originally made for a different illustration, depicting the two Satellite Soda characters Sim and Deadfang.
Well there's only Sim in this piece, but I wanted type in there and I think it still fit well enough in terms of context.

Let me know what you think!

Great looking poster in my mind. It's fun to just let yourself go and design where ever the imagination takes you at the time huh. Good too that you had a splendid result :)

Haha yeah, thanks. I got that vibe too, halfway through painting, and just rolled with it.

Fuckin awesome, how did you just randomly do that. your subconsciousness must have a good idea of design.

I did base the design on a logo created by Zack from Satellite Soda. I abstracted it quite a bit, but that was where the idea came from. So when I was done painting the figure I just kinda forced the composition around it. Then again it was really just a head shot, could have put that into almost any comp...
Thanks!
