This piece represents one of my earliest forays into computer coloring. All things considered, I’m surprised that it still somewhat holds up (and I’m not just saying that because it got me free action figures). The good news (depending on how you feel about things) is that this will probably be the last Flashback Friday for a long time. I don’t think I have anything else in the vault that I don’t find embarrassing. But then again, if I get desperate, you never know.
Archaelogists recently uncovered a piece that I created a jillion years ago. Carbon dating indicates that the illustration is from approximately 2000 CE. It was an entry for a “Design a Kubrick” contest in Previews–I placed second, winning myself some cool action figures, including an awesome Tetsujin 28 and Black Ox boxed set (in black and white anime colors). For educational purposes only, here is the title character of Princess Mononoke, in Kubrick form:
