The Return

Just saw District 9 last weekend, actually saw it twice. It was such a great movie and I can't say enough about it. The film blew my mind with it's genre-crossing format and visual style, juxtaposing aliens and their technology with a South African slum. Shartlo Copley brings an amazing perfomance to an amazing character concept through a well-written script and a good amount of improv. I'm hard-pressed to think of a more conflicted unlikely hero than him...I'm going to get a portrait of Weekus 70hrs after exposure tattooed on my chest. :) Anyway, this painting was loosely inspired by that movie and it depicts the long-awaited arrival of a ship back to it's people. Whether or not they go back and bomb the earth is up to Niel Blomkamp.

Raptor 3.0

Got called out. This was a bit of a pain in the ass, but fun. I haven't been flexing that muscle much lately, but I'm always happy to flesh out a design.
