This was created for a dubstep DJ named Culture Code. His music is very melodic with an aggressive and abstract edge to it. He is also known for his excellent remixes of other electronic artist's songs, so I wanted to create something beautiful, abstract and aggressive that looks like Culture Code took life and remixed it. I believe the final product captures the essence of his music nicely. Read Less

First I start with a crappy sketch to give the client a general idea of where I'm going with the project
Then I draw the outline in pencil
I start gradually adding detail
Once the pencil part is done, I scan it in and clean up the edges with a white brush and make a few contrast adjustments with levels and exposure in photoshop.
Then I make a selection of my pencil and create a new layer underneath it and fill it with grey paint.
I then took a soft white brush and a soft black brush and added shadows and highlights to create more depth
I then added a gradient over all of it
I added a few more details like drips from the fingers and then used a small hard brush to create horizontal "static" lines
This is a Variant of the tshirt with the eyes open instead of closed.
