Not that I should be doing this because I have a devastating deadline, but I couldn't resist finishing this sample. I have a new rep and I am going to be sending her a postcard of this image for a dummy she's hoping to send around. I am also going to use it for my anonymous First Impressions at our SCBWI/Carolinas conference in a few weeks. So much for anonymity.
My new love is Photoshop. I know, I'm as surprised as anyone. This is my new "everything but the kitchen sink" technique that is totally super fast. And super fast means more work and more work means more money. So this is working for me. And it's fun. FW sepia acrylic ink line, blocked in watercolor, the pattern in the background was ink line, processed in Illustrator and completed in Photoshop, many, many digital enhancements in Photoshop to finish. Me = happy.
