Hello--since I've already done my research at the library, I decided to use this day to begin the hardest piece in my series. For this piece, I wanted to base the colors and composition off of Disney fairytale movie stills, and went through movie stills of sleeping beauty to find inspiration.
First, I started with a pencil sketch. This took me longer than I expected, and I was having a lot of problems with the paper. I decided to sketch digitally, and chose to stick to the digital sketch which I've uploaded.
Then, I colored it--and hated it. I redid the colors, began rendering, and this is where I am as of today.
I think it's still in the "ugly phase," but I like what I've laid out. The stairs are obviously a wreck but it's salvageable (i think.) I think its manageable and will have a good result.
Also, I organized the pages of my book and decided to set my goal at two more pieces--a tiny spot illustration, and an acrylic painting. I also have two ink characiatures that I hope to finish.
