I did this for an SCBWI regional contest.  (The prompt asked us to illustrate the opening to “Alice in Wonderland” — a difficult task, given how iconic the original illustrations are!)  This is watercolor and colored pencil on illustration board, with additional effects added in Photoshop.

I have another take on the same subject, which I’ll add here just for contrast:

This was one of a series of greeting cards I did a while back with brush markers, a much looser — and, in keeping with the theme, quicker! — medium than the ones I generally use.
