Urban Barbarian Poster by urban-barbarian Urban Barbarian Poster by urban-barbarian
Initially another Symbols of Speed illustration destined for a t-shirt. I decided to use a technique I sometimes use when I do life drawing and juxtapose it with some symbology. Makes sense, given the title, I suppose.

But, as it turns out, it won't be a part of the SOS series - the guy won't pay me for weeks of work. So, I changed it and get to keep it. I'm thinking that's a good thing! ;)

I'd love to start illustrating comic books in the same manner. Ink with some tonal pencil work.

Yeah, it's an interesting composition with a mixed media approach.

Kinda reminds me of an Isis/Dianna mold, with the contemporary Gothic and Industrial elements (Background and columns with automobiles)

Was it the Goddess of love? Not sure, but I think she was the daughter of Poseidon... reminds me of that.
