I finally buckled down and forced myself to finish some new art. This piece was really meant to be a quick compositional exercise that I could knock out in an evening but it ended up taking a bit longer. It’s mainly composed of scans from my vintage Omni magazines that I’ve combined to assemble an other-worldly pseudo-electronic landscape.
My main challenge was finding the right arrangement for the colored dot patterns at the bottom. I had done a rough sketch to plan out the major patches of elements but in the end I could have planned it out better. Most of the process just involved experimenting with different patterns and locations, then sticking with what felt right intuitively.
Overall a fun piece to work on that gave me some ideas to integrate into future work.
