Progressive measures must be taken...



...And by that I mean, I shall post a progress of my (insanely slow) coloring process. Okay, I'm being a bit harsh on myself, I was and have been feeling sick since last Friday, and I'm also experimenting with new coloring processes so it's not as if I'm just naturally slow at this stuff. I can whip out watercolor paintings in a couple of hours. So, just give me time to get over my perfectionista personality while I figure this stuff out and get to feeling better in the process. I've also been researching a lot of Mary Blair art to get help on how much linework I should include in the illustration as opposed to just flat color.



On the other side of things I have a few sketches from Sketch Bomb! on Saturday. I was feeling okay enough to make it out to that which was nice because I got to meet some awesome new people, and do this awesome sketch that I'm turning into an illustration; the theme was take something from a film for grown-ups and make it for kids. Naturally I turned to the most icky things I could think of.... severed limbs... wood-chipper... Steve Buscemi...



...there is a pink rainbow in the colored version! Betcha just can't wait to see that!
