“Space” to me is what I’m out of, but I decided to boldly go in a different direction for this prompt. I tried a different paper (a Strathmore Multimedia Visual Journal) and a different palette (going for a softer, quieter mood), though I went with a limited color scheme (three colors only) once again.
The original’s around 4″ x 5.5″, in watercolor, ink, colored pencil, and a little gouache. I intensified the background a bit in Photoshop. I think I’d like to use this as a jumping-off point for a more finished (and better designed) piece, but it was fun to try some new things — and to get back to Illustration Friday.
