So I'm doing these Bloodsport challenges put on by the beautiful, oily muscled Crimson Daggers. We're tasked with making the box art for an action figure package using one of three imaginary properties: Crystal Crusaders, Legend of Lizards, or Gorilla Guardians. I finally decided on Legend of Lizards turning it into a universe where a manly man fights dinosaurs with ray guns. Here's a little bit of the development behind it and a couple of (wasted) studies. The final illustration will look more like the darker composition below.
