Into the Woods illustration

A fairy tale-themed illustration I did for the theatre production "Into the Woods". The people were photographed first, then I did the background forest illustration according to the lighting of each character. The details had to be quite specific as there are elements (like branches, tree trunks, twisted roots etc) that the characters would need to "interact" with. I spent the bulk of the time creating textures for the leaves, bark(s), grass and animal surfaces, and the final working file was about 4.5 GB. It was a massive effort, but it was the kind of project that allowed me to go nuts with all the crazy details I like to get into. This flyer is out now at Sistic outlets.

Hulk Hogan

‎"When it comes crashing down, and it hurts inside,
ya' gotta take a stand, it don't help to hide,
Well, you hurt my friends, and you hurt my pride,
I gotta be a man; I can't let it slide."
~from Hulk Hogan's theme song

Like the other kids around me, I knew those words well when I was a kid growing up in the 80's watching WWF wrestling.
