Illustration painted exclusively with standard brushes, using several layers to the tones of the skin, gums and tongue. Broken veins on the cheek and the tear were also painted on separate layers to play with the opacity and intensity of tones. The tear and heartbreaking gesture represents a painful transformation and a silent scream. Painted in Photoshop CS3 and CS5, this image is my first work entirely realized with the new Cintiq 24HQ.
