I’d set aside a month to do 10 of these images, figuring it would make for a relaxing pace and allow time to work with a new client. I don’t like to go into a project with a new client on a very short term schedule, because I’d prefer that they get a chance to review these more closely as we go, and so they can get a feel for where things are headed and how the images are developed. As it turns out, none of the design information was ready for me for about three weeks, but since the due date didn’t move to accommodate the delay, I was still gunning for all ten in a week. Mind you, at that point, my getting them done is a favor, not a contractual obligation.
But they got done. Well, nine of them, anyway. The tenth will need a little more design information and consideration before I can begin on that.
…a couple details from one of the images.
When I drew these, it was 30 degrees and wet and rainy outside. Thankfully, the day after I finished these I took a quick flight to warmth and palm trees. Mini-vacation… I needed it.
Although the drawbridge was the center of interest, this is my favorite part of the image.
I hope to post all 9 some day. It may be sooner rather than later… We’ll see.
The images are a combination of collage, photoshop, and pencil, and are all 11×17 and 300dpi.
