This painting is a remake of an old magic card called Goblin Charbelcher. I painted this one, the same time as another goblin card, and kind of missread the description thinking that this guy, showeling garbage up into a canon, was of the same goblin race as the other one I was painting. The sketch for this card shows a Moog ( A special kind of goblin race ) but in final I changed it to a more generic kind of goblin. Well, I am really not too fond of either green goblins or green orcs so I kind of made my own redish and brown dual colored skin tone for the Belcher. Often I think the dual tone for skin with a darker top and a lighter belly and underside of arms and palms, generally the softer areas, is great. It mimics how animals look in nature, and makes for a more believable creature.
For colors I used a very favorite palette theme of mine. Mostly I was thinking of a warm bouncing light from the trash and a bluish white from the moon, and more or lessed builded it all up from mixes of the two. I really try to think of temperatures in choosing colors. the difference descripe 3d objects better, I think.
