Enter Synaesthesia

By Laiin

My second attempt at a human face/form, first attempt at interesting/detailed backgrunds and complete digital image.

Its for a video game poster assignment at TAFE (collage-ish). The game is a techno/trance heavy 3d shoot-em-up which is said to send the player in a trance/synaesthesia through its rich graphics and synchronised sounds. Info about the game here: [link]

Please view the image before you read the rest of my comments.

Only thing I am unhappy with is the hair part, I will work on hair heavy image in a future project.

I can see my style emerging, monochrome skin with max 20% diff between the tones, with strong lips and eyelashes that look like they are expanding and bright colours (esp Hot Pinks and Fluoro Purples).

Thanks for taking the time to check my work out :)

Late comment.. but.. I actually played this game (on Dreamcast and PS2) and its one of my favourite games... was this design actually used anywhere or was it for school only? Were there any copyright concerns? It's amazing ofcourse.. very very nice! :)
