Christopher Langmuir

 

This piece was created for my comic strip, Dave & Vyacheslav; a collaborative effort between myself and a group of actors, photos of whom are the basis for the character illustrations. The inspiration came from the idea of incorporating their mannerisms, body language, and bearing into the portrayal of the characters, while adding my own visual flair.

This particular piece was created from a late-night photo shoot out in a park, where one of the necromancers in the strip, one Christopher Langmuir, performs a ritual, drawing upon the life force of the soil and earth around him.

I'm quite fond of the colour palette here, which I feel gives it a really striking feel.
