Character paintings-Yin, Yang, Yo
Here's some character paintings that I did last year for Yin, Yang, Yo. These were done as traditional paintings which were then finalized in Photoshop.
The idea behind these were that Yin and Yang were supposed to look really sick and disgusting. I tried to base the style on the old EC comic covers where the faces would always be underlit by a sickly green light.
The paintings of Yin were particularly difficult because she has really pink skin. That really made for a challenge when it came to making them look gross since yellows and greens can really clash with pink.
It always makes the job so much easier when you have good layout drawings to work from. All of the drawings were by Warren Leonhardt (boards) and Mark Ackland (director).
