Oranges and reds are some of the hardest colors to reproduce really well in Photoshop, alas. This piece has a great, intense bright orange that lightens up to golden-yellow in one corner, and holds a secret little demon-face in the other that scowls at you from out of the flame, or perhaps is made from it. The texture is enhanced with a bit of brown in the low spots, and the little face got a tiny bit of extra love to pull it out of the background using Copic markers.
Hellfire, 12″x12″ acrylic paint and Copic marker on canvas.
Above, you can see the scowly little demon-face glaring up at you from the canvas. Below, I stepped back and got a photo of it with some of the stuff on my desk, including pens, pencils, and a Jack in the Box Christmas antenna ball, because I am a very special sort of artist.
