Monster alien experimentation with human specimen - WIP stages

 Monster alien experimentation with human specimen - WIP stages

stages of WIP alien experiment retro illustration
Stages of artwork progression.

This sci-fi horror illustration features a giant monster about to experiment on a human subject.

It was painted digitally in 'Auto Sketchbook Pro' during January 2021. The first panel features a rough sketch with a digital pencil, while the second one shows colour now roughly painted into the illustration to give an indication of colour placement. It can be seen that the position of the human figure has been changed too. In the third panel can be seen the completed illustration. The painting and details are finer and it should be noted that between the 2nd and 3rd stages that the image is enlarged to about four times its original size and worked on at this larger scale to produce a fine resolution image. The hexagonal background was taken from a beehive image and altered in photoshop.

The illustration can be seen in greater detail on this link.
