This was done for one of my illustration classes. For this assignment, we had to pick a visual cliche from a list and incorporate it into an illustration. I chose cloud. My first thought is that clouds could look like brains (maybe?), so I did a bunch of thumbnails where a dude's brain was replaced with a cloud, kind of like an x-ray view. But then I thought that the clouds coming out his head would be more interesting, so I went with that, even though the cloud idea kind of turned more into smoke. Also, I keep looking at this and thinking 'Harry Potter'. Don't know if that's good or bad...

For this, I decided to do a basic painting in acrylic so I could get some cool textures. Then I added some details digitally.
