The Everlasting Journey

Another assignment for my composition class, this time focusing on a serpentine composition. The serpentine elements are there, but I feel that they're pretty weak. The concept behind the piece was a group of nomadic robots roaming the desert in a sandstorm. The first image was done entirely in acrylic, while the bottom image was a digitally enhanced version. I could have pushed the acrylic painting a lot more, but time constraints forced me to scan my painting and finish it via photoshop. I like it though, and will experiment with this traditional underpainting/digital touch-up process in future.
