This is supposedly the final Jr. Nightforce concept art/painting. It is of the magical box/cube that Riley finds. This box unfolds and creates a magical map that leads Riley to his next task at hand.
So I can't believe how effective it is to do a smaller version of a painting (i.e. a digital thumbnail or layout) and then to blow it up and finish it. In this case I created the first (thumbnail painting) in "Colors!" the beautiful painting program for the Nintendo DS. The 2nd picture is the blown-up/finished version that I did in photoshop. Total painting time from start to finish is no more that 2-2.5 hours!!!
