And, for the sketches below I'd really like to thank professional wrestler, Batista... for walking like a badass.
Some folks over at Conceptart.org convinced me to re-work my cyclops (plus I convinced myself). It wasn't going anywhere and I was in a slump because of it. I'd lost a challenge twice that I'd put on myself twice. So, this time I'm still not giving up, but I'm thinking about things BEFORE I start painting, not while. The last one was just not working for me... and if I'd finished it I would have put it in my portfolio- I don't think it was good enough anyway.
So, here (and the post below) are the re-workings of my cyclops piece.
