Tell-Tale Heart (2009) (full size)
school work

[ Painter & Photoshop ]

Illustration based on The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe. This one is probably my favorite project of the class I did it in--all because I had so much fun painting the gross heart.

Funny thing: I had an extended stupid artist moment where I followed the anatomy references too closely and ended up with fake-y blue plastic in the heart. As you can see in the concepts, I finally managed to get rid of it by the middle.
