This is a Poster i did together with three other Artists, namely Artur Fast (well known and frequently frontpaged as "Fartur Ast" here on Newgrounds), Mias (M1as, who was also frontpaged with even this picture) and Amadeus, who is simply the best Amadeus you could imagine.

Despite the Pic was a commercial Job, which i was requested with, there was an endless creative Freedom for they told me i could do anything i'd like to as long as it "looks great"

There was no doubt i had to take this chance to create something big and mindblowing, swashbuckling whatever and so i invited my greatest art-dude-homie-friends to support me and yeah, it was a very satisfying and meditative collaboration.

the lineart is done by all of us and the coloring is made by me.

If you're interested in, you can check out this gif, which shows you, who of us did which part of the lineart. "ICH" stands for me, because it's the german word for "me"

due to the fact that we lingered around most of the given time, we had to do this in little less then a week. This wasn't a real problem though, because it tooks not any longer then a couple of hours for each one to do his part of the Lineart and because we know each other well and know how to fit in a common style, it wasn't that hard to accomplish the lines fairly fast. (although after everyone finished his part i got obsessesed with adding more and more details like crazy-hell-schniedelwutz)

the most time-consuming part to do was adding the Colours. I'd never colored a lineart that saturated with this crazy amount of weird stuff before and further more it was the important job of the colouring to clear things up and makes the messy lineart approachable for the Viewer.

And beneath, this is the reason why i chose this pallete of warm, smooth colours in order to calm things down and to soothe the savage lineart :D

Fantastic! Definitely shows that there was a lot of time spent on this. Although it is not my favorite style, it's execution is top of the line. Keep up the good work guys!

The painting draws in the viewer. So much is in this piece You could stare at it forever and still find things in it. The drawing style with the looping lines creates another layer.

Thank you for sharing this work with the community.
