CONvergence poster

Here is a poster I did for Connie’s Space Lounge at CONvergence, a sci-fi convention in the Minneapolis area. It was a lot of fun to do and while I generally like the piece, it would have been so much better if I had been able to dedicate more than two nights to completing the entire painting. Originally slated to look more like a movie poster, I had to trim down the idea a lot because the comic took up nearly all of my free time in June, leaving me roughly 48 hours to finish this 11×17 painting. I wanted to add far more detail to her space suit, the robot, and just about everything else (especially the background).

Overall though, I can’t complain too much. I think it looks kind of neat and it’s the first time I’ve ever tried painting entirely in Photoshop. This piece was conceived, sketched, drawn, and painted entirely digitally, a first for me.
