Illustration Friday – Subterranean (#17)

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is Subterranean. I finally saw Avatar over the weekend (not in 3D though) – I thought it was pretty good, but kind of predictable. Maybe I need to see it again to have it really sink in, or maybe I need to see it in 3D. I just didn’t have the kind of “near religious” experience with it that a lot of people have had. I love the concept of the movie, but something just didn’t click with me. I probably need to see it again.

Anyway, what does all of that have to do with this piece? I think maybe it inspired it a bit. I also was trying to go for a bit of a Roger Dean look, which is kind of strange since I discovered after doing the piece that Avatar supposedly has some Roger Dean influences as well.
