This is a C.D. cover I came up with for Blonde Redhead's album La Mia Vita Violenta (My Violent Life). The colors are off so I will repost, but I think you get the gist of it.
The painting was done in gouache and the halo around his head is shiny gold paint, so its too bad it won't show on your screen unless you have a super-screen that shows metallic effects.
These are a few dwelling designs I came up with for my concept art class.
I have been looking at books that document vernacular building designs and its blowing my mind. If you have time, take a look at: Built By Hand, a book that is filled with interesting pictures and notes.
