52 Posters - #15 - Crossed
That aside, it was always my intention to use this series of posters as a testing ground for pushing the boundaries of how I work. For a while, I'd been caught up in the precision of steady and sharp edges to my linework. It's all very useful and I'm glad I spent enough time concentrating on such things that it's now something I don't even think about. I'd certainly spent enough time previously giving it no consideration at all...
To that end, a lot of these pictures feature a lot more experimentation with how lines can be formed without drawing lines, as well as playing with different media in the same piece.
This one used inks, washes, black and white ink mixed, and acrylic. Not ground-breaking as far as the comic art world is concerned, but certainly so in this little corner of it.
The character is based on the Crossed series, currently celebrating the end of one four year run and the start of another. Not for the faint of heart, and something that explores the darker areas of the human psyche.
