Asthma Incubus II progress

Progress so far on my new version of Asthma Incubus. Click to enlarge.

The original drawing from a few years ago:


A background to inspire the mood, painted in ArtRage using my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet:

I've hidden the background here so I don't distract myself while I play with the details. Using paint, metallic paint, airbrush and pencil tools. Mainly focusing on the Asthma Incubus itself:

This one is pretty cool, and a bit too close to home: I have two kids with asthma and you've captured it very well.

Thank you Kael - I may still fiddle with the figure. I'd like to have them exhaling rusty harmonicas and this composition is too small.

A good respirologist can really help. I hope your kids are generally comfortable: most grow out of it.

Thanks, I'm hoping they will outgrow it as well. We actually have a great pediatric pulmonologist and he's helped tremendously: much of the time they have little to no symptoms. Of course, sometimes when the weather turns we still hear those rusty harmonicas, but we have extra medications for when that happens :-)

I love this, I have had asthma all my life. And i absolutely love trees most of my artworks have trees in them somewhere!
