MATTAPALOOZA Promotional Flier


Another commission from HK!

I really tried going over-the-top with this one to try and test my skills. I tried multiple light-source techniques, I tried my hand at realistic human anatomy, I tried to mix it up with how I usually go about composing clouds and terrain. I've never done an erupting volcano like this before, and that was particularly FUN for me, really.

Through and through, this thing was really fun to work on. Stressful as the deadline approached for it, but I'm stoked with how it transitioned from the chicken-scratch doodle that we knocked out in a bar in Ft. Worth, and now...BAM. THIS! I'm stoked :D I hope y'all enjoy it.

So many great things, where to begin?!

Experimentation worked out quite well, I feel. This is an amazing poster.

But what the hell is Mattapalooza?

Phobotech responds:

Hell if I know. A Ft. Worth Legend's birthday bash, featuring some pretty rad local metal.

Also, there may or may not be some punky Elven Broads, heaps of beer, and Pterodactyles.
