Fun with Birds – Brandon Leach

Had some fun with this one after not having any ideas for a good while for the topic. Tried some new things, trying to shift my process around a bit and I think there was *some* progress made here. We'll see if it sticks next month.

Steampunk Reimagined – Brandon Leach

Had a lot of fun with this one, but I ran out of steam (ha!) about halfway through the background, so I reverted to my favorite background cheat method of half-ass painting with a cutout filter tossed onto it. I might revisit the image down the line and give it a proper background and tighten th
