Here's something I started working on tonight using the digital painting program ArtRage. This is a screenshot of the program. Click to enlarge.
I've been planning on doing some paintings with the character on the left, now dubbed Trilobite Boy. He's based off of the painting I did called Life as a Trilobite (below).
The girl on the right is wearing the anomalocarid dress. I've never actually finished a painting of that dress: I usually get frustrated or start working on other things. Here's some earlier versions, none of which were completed. The circle on her chest would be filled with a leechy, knife-like circular teeth pattern:
I just want to play with these characters, and have fun. I have a bunch of rough sketches in my Moleskine of Trilobite Boy in various scenarios, so expect to see more of him over the next little while. (And for Daniel and Peter, one will be under a bright blue sky with bold colours!)
More to come! I'm working on some more characters. She needs a pet.
