Like most of my illustration work, these are done very realistically and quickly, with a bit of brushwork showing and lots of detail. My work is often seen as spreads, so I render it to a finished degree that holds up well large as it does reduced down. Many of these pieces were done for historical textbook spreads or ads, in oils, with a little digital finessing at the end before sending off the high res files.
