The process

Big bird in a small cage

Inspired by big bird in a small cage by Patrick Watson I've worked on this painting quite a while outside of my freelance and game design work. It's been an absolute pleasure to work on this as it has consumed quite a few of my time.

I set out to put down an atmospheric view of an stuffy room filled with old stuff and interesting things to discover while maintaining a bit of a mysterious edge to it.
