This was really the first project of mine where I employed all the methods in this course. The one that really helped bring it all together was having a story behind the image. Originally I just drew the character with no background. While it looked good, it was obvious it just wasn't complete. So I walked away, imagined the scenario, then set to work on the rest. This was the result.
This was all done traditionally, first sketched in pencil, then inked and finally coloured with Copics.
