A client asked me to do a new commission for him to give to his wife for her birthday. Last year I created a Tintin cover for him to give her for Christmas (she was his fiancée then) which took place on Safari in Africa.
This year it was a boat chase off the coast of Italy. They provided me with a few photos from their recent trip and I took it from there. Here's the final art:
The final art was printed poster-sized and framed for the wall of their home. I also gave him a small image saved for the web so he could share the art with his friends on Facebook.
I tracked my progression from sketch to final and uploaded the work in progress to Behance. Have a look and leave a comment please.
A few images from along the way to pique your interest:
And here's the poster I created for this client last year.
