Betrayal - Surreal illustration by Mario S. Nevado

Betrayal

Betrayal by Mario Sánchez Nevado

Betrayal

Hysterical Minds recently release last week their 11th art pack entitled “Empathy” (you can view it here). The main premise this time was the usage of complimentary color combos to buil high-contrast color palettes. The idea to create a versus-like, opposite concepts challenge in the conceptual side was optional, but most artworks end up developing this thematic side as well, and the result’s been a wide range of artworks about empathy in many different conceptual fields.

I developed two artworks for this release, “Betrayal” and “Nirvana”. The first one was a try out on the global warming illustration – climatic change subject. The illustration is based on a set of very old sketches I drew 4 years ago about domestic violence. Some tweaks here and there on the composition and here we are.

Following, you can find some screenshots of the image process (which took approximately one month, on and off), and some mock-ups / product shots, since the image was developed with printing usage in mind – In fact it’s available for licensing as CD/Book cover (get in touch if interested!).

    Thank you Mario. I would like to add this print to my postcards that I send to Washington to protest Trump’s agenda. It says so much more than I can with words. Any issues or concerns with using your work for this purpose?

    msu4now As long as you give them away and don’t sell them, by all means you are free to proceed. 
    Oh, and if you can take photos of that, it would be awesome to see. 
    Cheers!

    I really like your BETRAYAL artwork. It reveals the human person in a face of technology. I would like to have a copy of this for my class discussion.
