Was watching some Breaking Bad, got fixated on the Mariachis.
Thumbnailing for the sake of thumbnailing, didnt have much of an idea of what I wanted, though it was a healthy release of ideas.
Started messing around with some bigger value/toned thumbs, still not 100% sure what I'm going for.
Meshed some of the previous thumbs together to achieve some of these details, then of course I split what I had and made it symmetrical.
...And after a lot of overlay sketching and transforming, (and food), I developed a composition that was starting to make sense. It wasn't until I added the pelvis that I really pushed for the finish. Maybe it was the anthropomorphic information that made it work for me. Freestyle is fine, but I suppose you can't ground a piece until it can be at least partially recognized in some realistic manner. Wether it is organic or artificial, these visual cues are a lifeline for imaginative work.
