Mars Attacks!

April 22, 2023 · in Sci-fi · · 22 · 0.6K

This is my most recent commission piece for a local store. Seems like there will be more based on this one.

Definitely a fun paint project. Mars Attacks is an entertaining . Not too deep or anything but definitely a classic at this point.

The overall process was really straightforward. The only parts that were of any real concern were the addition of the green and red to the face where it felt like there was a lot of potential for things to go south and then the detail painting of the irises. The fine thread like structures in the iris are always a challenge to get to look somewhat realistic. I feel like they turned out really well though.
