new work: dark god


The latest in my Petroglyph Prints series…just in time for All Hallow’s Eve!

Deep below the magnificent skies of heaven in the fiery underworld souls are tortured for their misdeeds by the Dark God. If you like it, you can purchase a gorgeous 12×12″ print here.

I haven’t done a Petroglyph Print in awhile and I thought that it would be cool to something for Halloween. Petroglyphs were before the written word, so these images are a part of our collective unconscious along with our base fears, so it seemed a natural fit.

I started with this cool oil slick photo I took in a parking lot with my iPhone:


I combined some other textures that I shot on my iPhone to develop the background:


After I was satisfied with the background, I flattened the image and took it into Aviary to add a nice rugged black frame to give it a finished look. Then I searched through my Petroglyph research and found these two creepy looking Petroglpyhs that looked like they came right out of a Hieronymus Bosch painting.



After finishing each one in Adobe Illustrator, I moved them into Photoshop for the final composite and coloring.
