I was asked to submit art for competition that required me to work outside my comfort zone. I needed to work in darker, moodier colors than I usually do, and these guys are some of the results. It was surprisingly invigorating riding the discomfort line. These took more pre-planning, which is hard for me since I tend to work instinctually, but all in all I think they turned out A ok. So, the lesson here for me is don't get too comfortable in your comfort zone.
