I'm seriously stoked about this. Been contemplating how to handle graphics on my Lost playset and packaging if I make it. There's tons of photo material to be found, but illustration is so much more satisfying and Mego-true. I especially admire the Hal Shull paintings EMCE commisioned for the Trek packaging.
Full disclosure, I started this by tracing over the photo in line first. I'll keep refining it, but it's a really exciting start. It's been a long time since I did portraits.
