The Earth Men: Color Thumbnail

Yes, I combined acrylic and digital for this comp.The finished one will be in acrylic only! I want the piece to have a snapshot quality, so I needed to play with depth of field. Instead of fooling around in the dark trying to "blur" in acrylic, I figured I should just blur the damn thing in photoshop. Now I know what edges to lose and soften. Comps in photoshop are infinitely faster than acrylic, but I still like the randomness and, in my mind, superior color that traditional affords.
