Bankers at the Dawn of Civilization :: for Playboy (nsfw)

T :: this would have been disturbing if it wasn't so prevalent. They took the bailout cash, pocketed it as bonuses and blew it on coke and whores in Vegas. The 1st sketch had to be cleaned up somewhat, to keep it classy.

  1. 1st sketch is awesome--too bad you had to clean it up.
    But the final product, as always, amazing. Keep up the great work!

  14. I almost wish you had kept more of the orange in the final version. The sketches look like the bankers have been going all night and the sun is rising on their strippercokefest. Although the final pallete does have a surreal look to it which is nice. I enjoy how the bankers are all brown and the strippers orange too.

  15. The colors, the movement, the compostion. You rock. Haha, it's so funny to see how you cleaned it up. Maybe it was too shocking, if you see a man throwing up and stuff.. but i think it's cool.

  17. Great Work! - also the first one which was a bit more "Sodom and Gomorrha" than the final one.
