On my forty plus minute commute home I'm listening to the Butthole Surfers, and they're going on about the freak nation, which gets me thinking of Hunter S. Thompson. I decided I'd do an art piece of Hunter since I was a big fan of his. This is odd because I usually don't do art like that. Unfortunately I have a ton of work to do once I get home.
So I'm working late at home on art for Guild Wars. I've been working on it for a few hours. I can't shake the need for doing that pic. So I first sketch the flying Hunter skull Steadman introduced a long time ago. I don't like it, so I turn the layer off. Then I begin sketching Hunter in his later years on a new layer. It sucks too. As I get ready to close the image I turn on both layers for a quick look. The skull overlays Hunters head almost perfectly. Something about it kind of works. I spend the next thirty minutes on it. Not the best (far less than he deserved), but done enough for now.
