The traditional thrills and spills of the Santa Carla Beach Boardwalk are eschewed in favour of higher tech excitement! The local kids gather on a bluff with hologram projecting game consoles strapped to their backs, ready to take part in the ultimate Battle Royale!
This illustration has been the most involved piece I've done yet. At 6000 x 4000 pixels it pushed my iPad pro and my layer management skills to their limits! But it also gave me the opportunity to explore adding lots of detail.
I was inspired by one of my art heroes, Todd Schorr who creates large scale paintings full of crazy characters and bizarre pop culture references. Its easy to get lost in his work as you pour over each detail. I wanted to create a similar feeling with this piece.
I'll be adding original sketches from this project soon, and one or two of the characters might find their way into ZBrush at some point in the future!
