Got Me Hooked by transfuse Got Me Hooked by transfuse
It's been a long, long time since I've submitted anything, but when I saw this contest, I knew I had to enter it for my wonderful girlfriend :iconb-b-bunny: --she's the inspiration behind the work. She loves Dr. Pepper and actually got me hooked on it, hence the title. Thanks, Hunny Bunny. :)

About the work itself: I've always admired well done graffiti artwork and wanted to try my hand at rendering something done in that visual style. This contest was a great opportunity to experiment with it and try to incorporate it into my art style. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Anyhow, hope you kiddos dig it. :)

Btw, you can check out a progression/mock-up over yonder:

I saw the name of this picture and thought "I bet he's in Texas..." Then saw Lewisville.. Haha, that is one of the strangest things I've discovered since I moved here. People are like addicted to the stuff.
awesome picture, keep up the good work. And "yo", from Plano.

Oh gosh yours totally deserved to be in the semi finals!!! I swear!! It's so colorful and really would've looked so awesome on the mural (better than that copy paste crap that won.)

That is seriously hardcore : D And I just got to say, you are one hell of a competition. I normally get bored of graffiti type artwork but your entry is very interesting, and keeps my eye constantly moving around the composition. The colors are well chosen, and they definitely "pop" which is important for a mural. Plus I could def see this as a mural in the big apple : ) I'd certainly stop to stare. Nice job.

This is incredible. I love the colorful cartoon style. With all the bold lines, so many details just pop when you look at that portion of the picture.

It like a mix of hand drawn and cell shading.

Hey Ivan. Got your e-mail. Different from your usual style but awesome nonetheless. I've been experimenting with finding a good cartoony style for myself but have to conquer realism first. This is definitely awesome though. I think it speaks out to a lot of ages, both young and mature. Especially for Dr.Pepper fans the world over. The colors don't hurt the eyes at all either, even as bright in contrast as they are. It just pulls all the attention in like it's meant to. Great job man! It's nice to see you post on here too. It's been nearly a year :squee:
