Painting IV - S 


Pratt 4 / 8 of 77


This was another one where the animal changed. Originally I was going to do squid, because some of my close friends seem to really like squids. But after I did some sketches and boiled them down to a drawing, the squid seemed way to small and "zoomed out." Luckily, there were a bunch of other cool "S" animals to choose from! I chose Scorpion.

I wanted to try and go for some sort of loud scary color against a really dark background (you know like, "AHHH! A SCORPION!" I started with red, but red + pinchers was too lobstery. So Orange it was! This photo isn't great, but the background is a nice bluish charcoal color.
