"Euclid (WiP)", June-July, 2007. Digital painting in Photoshop.
Full view, so it'll look extra-creepy.
This here, is Euclid;
"[Euclid] is a giraffe with zebra stripes that fires lightning out his eyes and exhales flour."
Thus were the instructions I was given by the band Gelatin Offramp -- [link]
-- when I was commissioned to design the cover of their upcoming album, The Return of Euclid.
Euclid was a character the lead singer (my cousin, btw) and his friend came up with way back in elementary school (in geometry class maybe?).
Some characters stick with you, y'know?
Anyhow, I call this a work in progress, but Euclid as you see him is done. The work that still needs to be done is getting the proper size for the album artwork, working on typesetting, color, etc. But Euclid is pretty complete right here.
He's really creepy up close too *shudder*. But I like how it came out.
