Looking for Spiders down a Rabbit Hole – book cover painting part five

Here’s where the game gets interesting.

Day five, and I start to lay down my monochrome under painting. It’s pretty lose, as this is basically a new sketch. I tried to really just pin down the basic shapes and values with out getting too bogged down by detail. These early stages also help to add texture. I use a large brush, so I get some nice sweeps which will stay there until the end.
