Classy Mail

Project completed! My biggest issue believe it or not, was finding the right size envelope. Not even the post office had them (not in yellow at least) I ended up getting the next size smaller, which meant having to redraw and resize where everything would fit in the envelope.

The smaller size made it a bit more difficult to work with the tombow brush pen and really get the smoothness I was looking for (there was a lot of correcting involved). I can't wait to mail this and to get started on a new one for the exchange. Updates coming soon!

_______________________________

I did a practice run on tracing paper to try and get used to how each stroke felt/looked before I went and tried it on the envelope. I think I finally got the hang of getting those clean lines. I did learn that I have to be patient and let the paint really dry before going into each step...that's where most of my mistakes were. As far as the drop shadows go, I still haven't decided if I'm using them in the PMB  address line.

I got to do some compostition sketches over the past week and narrowed it down to one layout

The pencil's very light but I hope you can make out most of it! I'm hoping to start the final mid next week.

I started working on sheets and sheets of lines and strokes last week, here's a couple of shots. I was having a bit of a hard time with breaking down the letter "C" though.
