Progress on Poster Painting

Here's the progress I made this week! I'm wondering how much further I should go... if I should add some light? I keep pulling back and trying to keep it simple.

Adding Colour

I had some fun making this rough colour study of my short film poster on top of the updated line art. I wasn't too happy with my last line pass so redrew the whole thing. Her skin looks just a bit too cadaverous doesn't it? I mean, she is dead, but only recently so. I will fix up all my colour choices. As well, I think the blood dripping off the knife currently looks like the knife is floating in the air, so I'm going to adjust it a bit to make it look like everything is lying on the floor.
I will probably go with a "cartoony" sort of shading, or at least something that isn't too fancy.

I'd like to get my poster done and maybe a few more pieces that can grace the front pages of my Facebook, Instagram and all the place I share Pickled online.

Here are some of my rough concepts for the Pickled poster:

My first colour concept test.

This second version is more simple shapes. I really love boiling down an image to it's essence.

My first attempt at painting this poster. I'm going to repaint it however as I feel the drawing needs some work and the painting really needs some work.

This is the first little scribble I did to get my idea on paper.

Take a Deep Breath...

Here is a small taste of a big scene I've been working on! It's been so addictive to work on this. I hate doing a bunch of work and ...
