I like this sketchbook due to the dark colours in the background and the technique used to do this. The background is completely filled using paint in layers. The dark browns and reds make a background for the writtten work - these colours are roughly joined with cool colours which make a detailed water and boat scene. I like the way the writing becomes part of he painting. . The overall effect is breathtaking.
This is a depiction of the character Dom from the Gears of War franchise. This character has also transcended the world of video games and developed a following of his own as a character. That is where I find purpose, the thought of something I make, one day transcending their platform.
