I wanted to maintain a viable balance of well localized detail and painting strokes, while keeping within reds and blues. Eventually I gave into a warm yellow to highlight the contrast traditional VS the new in this piece.
"The late emergence of apes forced their evolutionary branch to grow smaller in order to survive the feline-controlled biosphere. Human history was analogous to our actual history, accompanied by the worshiping of giant mammals. Dinosaurs are small bird-like beings that became pets and food for humans. Since the beginning of recorded history, the Tiger has been the protector of Japan. It is the god of death and light. It roams his cities reminding humans and dinosaurs of their rightful place on earth."
