An image that feels like it's taken me forever to finish
Found and Lost
Old Illustration Style.
Pencil Sketch + Photoshop.
Something I've been working on for a very long time. It started as a simple pencil sketch. I scanned it, redid most of the line work again digitally and then split the job of finishing it into colour and lighting.
The lighting and correcting of all the really horrible anatomy issues took about 90% of the time. For the colouring, I tried to emulate the look of the old water colour storybook illustrations. I might try a few other colour finishes if the mood takes me.
