There are a few elements from Voltron and an image I found on the web that contributed to this painting. I am astounded by color usage in that whole series, beautiful contrast and mood created. One scene in particular is in the lion’s cockpit and the pink color of the view screen. The image, is a stark black and white photograph of large boulders found on a beach. It gave me the most incredible feeling seeing it, desolation and strength.
This is my second attempt designing the cat-like creatures. The first were taken from lion fish features. This time, I wanted to incorporate more of the crystalline nature of the world into the creature itself. I also merged insect facial features with the grace and mannerisms I find in cats.
I am super pleased with this piece.
Side note: the pink I used acted more like a spot color. So I when I translated it to a CMYK color platform the color changed. Disappointing but I knew why it happened.
