Mad Man


posted on 9th of august, 2010

This image started out as a doodle of a humanoid science fiction character: Thick black eyes, strange folds in the skin, etc. Trying to think "like a buyer" I had a suspicion that it might sell better if it was more human- and business-related.

So I erased some parts and added others—especially his suit and tie! I then started to morph him into an angry "boss man" character inspired by the many prototypes in cartoons, comics and sitcoms I watched over the years.

I added some uncut hairs on his scalp to accentuate the chaos of his personality. The halo is probably over the top. It almost reminds me of a portrait of a passionate Hindu diety. I'm not too happy with the colors of his suit and tie. Nevertheless, I think it makes the point.
