Reworked my latest image a bit.
The composition wasn't working for me at all. So I decided to think about the subject of the painting, and realized the story was really this kid and the story HE was telling to Heavy. This story about an epic battle that's taking place in his mind and he wants Heavy to join him. I tried to include all the stuff my son loves and all the things I liked as a kid. Let's just say we have very similar tastes. In fact, I asked him about all these things and he kept getting more and more excited.
So, I just decided to doodle what that scene would be. Then I understood that it should take up the majority of the piece and have it more exploding out of the boy's head.
The boy will be Ayden. It'll be awesome.
I'm REALLY diggin' where this ended up.
