Tomb Raider

One pleasure of working digitally is the endless ability to tweak or completely change your images, without affecting the original or worrying about matching dried out paint.  This caricature/portrait was part of a poster for a long-gone show.  However,  I liked the character and his polite anxiety too much to abandon him, so spent the afternoon developing the image further.  For some reason I was thinking “archaeologist taking a bad snapshot of himself in a mysterious cave”.  Not sure why . . .

The background is abstracted from holiday snapshots taken in Karnak, the foreground image digitally painted using a Wacom tablet.
