THUS ends (for now) one of the most trying projects I've ever completed. Someone slap me the next time I agree to take on huge projects in the middle of finals, during a heavy semester.
For the most part I'm really happy with it though. 22 illustrations for a friend of a friend who's trying to get a children's book published. Also, I just want to show you how ridiculous my sketch - finished process is. I don't mind sketching, but usually I just feel repetitive doing it for big things.Sometimes this works out, sometimes it make things a lot more difficult.
And yes, it actually was faster for me to do paintings than to do it start to finish digitally. Which is a little disturbing.
