A Princess of Mars in living color
It has been a very productive few days. Finished the revisions of a very big and important job. Will hear tomorrow if any other changes are needed before heading to press on Thursday. Signed a million DIARY OF NIGHT postcard size prints. Not a million really, just looked like it. And tonight after a late dinner I did the above. Based on a sketch I posted here a while back. This is done in ink, watercolor, and acrylic on 11" x 15" 140 lb, Strathmore cold press watercolor block. My scanner made it look brighter and more saturated than the original so I desaturated it a bit. Got it looking the same as the original but then I post it and it looks duller than the original. Oy! I can't think of the last time I painted something using traditional mediums. I think I needed to bust loose a bit. I really have a ton of work to do but sometimes you just got to take a couple of hours after a 12 hour day and do something for yourself. :) I also wanted to do something different for the blog. It's been a lot of misc. sketches and business illustrations lately. Don't want anyone to get bored. :) Good night all!
