Terrible Yellow Eyes

Here is my contribution to Terrible Yellow Eyes, a tribute site to Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are." This was a lot of fun to paint.


I've also uploaded a desktop wallpaper version of this piece to Flickr.

Here is some process on the piece:

 
 
  
As you can see I change my mind alot when painting. I'm constantly trying different colors, shapes, poses, etc. Sometimes the whole thing can get so muddled that I will open up my original sketch file just to make sure I've still got the essence of my original drawing.
