I elaborated on my Strangerville fan art. The original piece was created on stream before The Sims 4: Strangerville was released, so I had no idea what the overall story of the game pack was.
All I knew was that there was a general X-Files/Stranger Things type of mystery, and I took the characters, Alicia and Irwin, from the trailer and other promotional materials.
I’ve actually been playing the Strangerville mystery again, and had a lot of fun with it. Stranger Things 3 was also out this summer, and I was kind of indulging in a lot of horror movies and paranormal mysteries youtubes. This all inspired me to add to the original work and make it a retro movie poster, as I probably had intended it to be.
The challenge I made for myself was creating a piece that looked like it could be a retro poster, so composition of the shapes and colours was important. I worked on this for about a week or so, a few hours every night because I didn’t really want to rush it. I have never drawn this many characters in one piece before. I even re-rendered Alice and Irwin.
Putting this all together was a lot of work, and forced me to be very patient with my art. In the end, I had a lot of fun with it!
