IF (Illustration Friday) 3/28/14, the topic was Sizzle.  This was a tough topic initially, and I had a hard time coming up with an idea.  Most of the ideas I had were too bold, or would have been both frustrating and laborious.  After sketching out ideas, one came to me.  I had just completed a video game with vampires, and it occurred to me that vampire's skin "sizzle" when they are exposed to sunlight.  So I took some photo reference of my hand and used a light source in my house.  I spent quite a bit of time on this piece, and really enjoyed the smoke effect (I literally had to tear myself away from the piece at one point because I just kept playing with it).  The piece is entirely digital done in Painter.
