recently, pete mohrbacher asked if i’d take a crack at his ‘zaqiel’ image for his angelarium project.  i said ‘yes’ and have been working on it for the past couple of weeks.

with this project, i’m thankful to be able to maintain my process of working in both traditional and digital mediums.  including traditional processes within a digital workflow retains a tactile quality in the image that a purely digital process seems to miss... for me.

at this point, the traditional portion of the project is complete [see attached image] and now i'm digitally pumping up the contrast and textures in preparation for the color phase of the image.

more updates next week.

you can find pete’s angelarium work on his site and instagram.
