Matrix Cover by Kerong Matrix Cover by Kerong
This was the cover for the project. My first time doing the painted thing which tons of fun...back then I was heavily into JC Leyendecker so I tried my best to put all his moves in this piece. JC is the second only to Michelangello as far as my favorite artist goes. So much to learn from him...ask Rockwell.

I actually scanned a circuit board and made the background texture out of it. Ruined scanner haha...aaah it was worth it. :D

Have you ever looked at Louis David? He's my all time favorite painter.

Dude, when you started doing Leyendecker rendering in black & white line art for your half-tones... I swear I blew a spring in my brain.
