This was one of the first Twitch graphics commissions I really challenged myself with. I hadn’t done digital painting before and  I did it live during #DesignStream. It was nerve wrcking, but the result was incredibly satisfying at the time. Oh, how far we’ve come!

For this project, I used digital painting for the first time. The concept behind this design was “The Beast Within”. Elegant on the outside but vicious on the inside.

I decided to tackle “elegance” with a streamlined shape and simple texture for the frame. I added imperfections and damage, as well as zerg mutalisk wings hinting the presence of zerg activity.

The colors were sampled from the client’s personal brand and from the wings of the mutalisks themselves.
