The intergalactic gentleman is a digital illustration which mixes vintage illustration elements with a bit of surreal imagery. This design started with a concept, which evolved to create a quite different exploration. Initially, I wanted to create a digital illustration of a gentleman only, with a high degree of realism. However, after about halfway, I decided to drop this idea and make the design a bit more bizarre, surreal, and add fantastical elements. The final design features a vintage gentleman, with what appear to be overlaid stars or bright speckles, and a bit of blue glow coming from inside his eyes. I might have gotten the idea of the blue, penetrating eyes from reading Frank Herbert's Dune recently.
