The Earth Men: Thumbnail

This is a thumbnail for the next chapter in the Martian Chronicles. It comes after many other thumbnails were tossed out and I received some good critiques from coworkers. This will be one of the last few chapters that I do. Unfortunately, I don't have the energy or the desire to do all the chapters. Frankly, some of them just don't excite me from a picture-making standpoint, and I have a lot of other ideas that need to get finished. One thing this whole endeavor HAS done is make me use traditional media more, and make me really focus on my compositions. There have been bumps along the way, but I really enjoy jumping in and trying something new.

There are a few more chapters that I really want to paint, so I will get to those after this then move on to a personal project I have been tinkering with for a while. I'm starting to do random doodles with acrylic and watercolor/gouache in my sketchbook, so some of those will end up on here from time to time.

You'd better get on with it:

Hah, yeah, I saw that. Word on the street is that it may not be very good.
