What a trip this was! I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that I've been through more of a slog than this marine in his bog! This piece was particularly challenging for me as I skipped the whole traditional shindig and went straight to digital art when I started learning around four years ago. I feel that this artwork is a representation of that: a modern and sleek marine, my digital illustration abilities and knowledge, trudging through the rough landscape representing the more traditional approach to art.
The way I tackled this was to take a much more textured approach to the foreground and background, while making the marine himself much more refined with clean lines and bright highlights. One of the ways I accomplished this was by restricting myself to using entirely different brushes for the respective techniques to order to further represent the separation between them.
