Ozymandias Update

Good evening, dear readers. Are you ready for yet another redundant blog post? no? Too bad! Some of my stuff takes longer to get into Illustrator than others, and thank goodness for that. Ozy has come a long way since it's-- wait for it... inception! hah! get it? no? :(
...and I'm enjoying playing with composition and concept way more than I ever used to. One of these days I'll learn to save myself some time and figure this out in thumbnails. god, I did do thumbnails for this. and none of them looked anything like this. But I suppose that doesn't really matter, because now the picture is one big "pull my finger" gag; I'm just saying it before someone else does. What do you, the people at home think? does this composition do anything for you? is it compelling? does your eye follow the finger to the horizon and then ride the horizon to the piercing stare of Ozymandias? do you look at what he's staring at? Despite the sky sort of pointing to the appropriately named 'Lil Dude' I fear that s/he's a little too little in terms of visual weight. but I'll see what I can do to remedy that. Hope to post again soon. Weee!

Another post, a newer sketch of my latest illustration: Ozymandias. I've made a big change to Ozy's head, thank goodness.

This is the image from the original post. just thought I'd throw it in to show the progression.
