If you checked out my last journal you might remember me blabbing about some kick ass fan art I was working on. Well, here it is! This is Gabriel from LMS by the immensely talented
This was a real joy to work on, I was really intimidated to do this. Especially the fact that I was working off work by Dan and his ridiculous photorealism. I've been watching Dan for a while now and have seen LMS grow from infancy into the force it's become, and the book hasn't even been released yet. It's crazy to see someone's success happen before you, from something you see as a cool image and see the other persons passion in it. Then to see them get recognition and respect for it, to see their vision flourish into reality is...... incredibly inspirational.
I was drawn to do this because of the insanity and the chaotic world that Dan has illustrated so wonderfully. Plus the fact that Gabriel is such a badass. I was planning on leaving it just pencils, but when I scanned it the pencils were extremely light so I went ahead and inked it. Enjoy.
