My entry for the Executioner Contest
Made with GIMP 2.6 and Genius 8x6 Pen Tablet
So here is my first entry for this and any contest, accompanied by my long-winded artist comments. This piece was kind of a random thing. I saw the contest, I love Resident Evil, and started painting. Went through a lot of iterations. Possibilities included stuff like the Umbrella logo carved into his back, different backgrounds, different methods, bla bla bla. Originally he was going to be dragging a random corpse, but then I thought about how to make him more terrifying and I decided to make the corpse Alice, to imply that the Executioner is so terrifying and bad-ass that not even the hero can kill him. The orange tinge is supposed to be like rust and decay. Normally, I hate using the color orange, but it works quite while for post-apocalyptic stuff. Now that this is finally done, I can work on my other entry. Gonna try to not go so overboard with that one..
PS. Painting realistic chains sucks.
The Executioner, Alice, and the Umbrella Logo belong to their owners, not me.
PPS. You might have to go into full view to see it.
