The Palms Hotel
Oh yeah, now this was great, a big glossy casino in Vegas, I mean come on, it doesn't get a whole lot cooler than that! This place is all about partying, glitz, Playboy Bunnies, money and bright lights.
I wanted to make this as visually stimulating as possible, to try and convey the 24/7 party atmosphere of the casino. The top area was a 3D/flash piece, where as you selected a thumbnail from the right, the whole thing collapsed and revealed hundreds of images below whizzing past (further showing the none stop, all action nature of this casino and its buzzing night life) and then suddenly, the one you chose comes flying into focus and fills the space. Great fun!!!!
Don’t ask, I have no idea. He hee, well, I just got a little caught up in some good issues of ImagineFX, one too many fantasy movies and a couple of great new books, needless to say I thought I’d throw a mix of traditional painting with my usual cartoony style...and got this.
These were a fun little bunch of characters to do! I haven’t been doing much in the way of illustration recently due to a huge influx of more design orientated jobs, I’m not complaining mind, but it’s nice to bring out the sketchpad again and create some funky miners!
