The Death of White

Still working on 'Tailbone' a series of short stories, starting with the near completion of the first, that see a future where humans and hybrids are forced to live side by side. This is a slightly morbid picture of White, a hybrid who died during the first discovery and capture of hybrids. Her death was the catalyst for the first hybrid rebellion. As the government who stole her prepared to dissect her remains, it was said that even some of the hardiest scientists could not bare to perform the autopsy. Her human appearance was too much for their morality. However rumor claims that her human face was what caused the immediate destruction of the hybrids to be put on hold - for the government to consider their humanity. Photoshop Speed Paint

Gold wip

Work in progress for Gold from my short story, 'Tailbone' which is due for completion in the next week or so :) Here I am playing more with what I learnt from painting Black. He will be brighter, with light from the side of him to show illumination in his hair and eyes. Playing with Burning layers and Overlay, too.

Tailbone is a short story I will soon have completed as part of a month summer project: i.e. write a story in one month. It doesn't matter how long but it must be finished! So I started to work out the fine points of an idea I already had cooking and though this character isn't in it, he is part of the back story. I drew a lot of these hybrids to help inspire my imagination - here I practiced with shadow too to further my photoshop practice. Here he's in a warehouse, as the government decide what to do with this weird creature they have discovered.
