Mortal Kombat

Yeah so this painting turned out a lot different than the one I started with which you can see further down the blog. I liked the way the old 1 was going until I went to bed then looked at it again with fresh eyes and hated it so I started again and this was the result.
I wanted a cool light source from 1 side and a warm light source from the other. So when I decided to start again I realised that the reason it went wrong the 1st time was because I didn't do any research, I just launched straight in and started colouring based on my own ideas of what it would look like... *slap* bad Michael!
In the end I found what I was looking for in a Father Ted episode where Ted and Dougal get lost in the very dark caves and lo and behold there's a shot inside the cave where Ted is lit by 2 lights... a blue light from 1 side and a red light from the other. Examples can be found in the weirdest places!
