Rock Centaur

Two summers ago Nick made a birthday request: an illustration of him as a centaur, rocking out metal-album-cover style.

And this past fall, he finally got it!

Here are the color comps I experimented with, many based on famous album covers (can you read my awful handwriting?)

Some of the other location concepts – rock island in a pool of lava, lightning storm on a craggy mountaintop, shaft of moonlight in an ancient forest, at the desert church from “November Rain”, on a cliff over raging ocean waves.centaur_thumbnails_valuecentaur_sketchesNick has been so incredibly supportive throughout my whole MFA program – I appreciate it so much!!

Love you to pieces. Now go rock the faces off a thousand monsters!
