Here's something the I did for an art-test over the weekend. The top one is a speedpaint and the bottom one a more worked out version based on the speedpaint. I had very strict guidelines, like which character, what kind of environment and which rifle to use.
I really don't know why I keep doing these bloody art-tests. They eat up all my time and stress levels sore because the only feedback I will get is: yes or no. Maybe I do it in the hope that I can leave this unpredictable freelancing behind and join a nice team again. Anyway, it's always good to have some more work to add to my portfolio I guess.
