So I'm getting back to my roots ... back to illustration and more traditional art. The Spring Thing is an idea to promote an upcoming event organized by an awesome group of crafters and artisans ... the D.C. Craft Mafia. I thought it would be a great way to pick up my Wacom pen and tablet and get back into the groove. Not as easy as I thought it would be ... not honing your digital painting and illustrating skills over a span of several years really atrophies one's abilities.
Here are some preliminary sketches and the initial coloring. The finished product will hopefully be done this weekend. With a few more personal projects in the works, I should be scraping all the rust from my wrists and be up to speed (and skill).
