Entropy - colored version

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Finished June 16, 2005. Prismacolor pencils on a computer printout of the black-and-white version (after I had cleaned it up in Photoshop, of course). Once again, this piece lives up to its title. I had it all planned out--nice, light, muted colors, a subltle background, maybe only 5 or 6 different pencils involved total. Then I actually started to work on it, and over several days, it gradually morphed into this retina-frying technicolor monstrosity. (Don't get me wrong, I love this thing.) No background, you'll notice--I figure it's already so complex that adding a background would make people's heads explode (not to mention my own). Once again I find that my scanner likes to chew up and spit out color pictures. It took me hours of Photoshop fiddling to get this to look like it does in real life. I still couldn't get the orange to be as bright as it should be, but I don't blame Photoshop for that--I don't think computer monitors have the capacity to display the insanely bright color that is orange Prismacolor pencil. For some reason, I keep thinking this would look great airbrushed onto a T-shirt or something.
