Since computer art was pretty much just coming to be when I graduated art college, the pieces for this project were done '‘old school’'. That is, entirely by hand. Pencil drawing, finalized in ink, then colored by design marker combined with Prismacolor colored pencil.
With the book thus started, I elected to continue to do all the subsequent peices the same way. Yeah, my hand and wrist do tend to be a bit sore when I finish each plate, but the consistent look it provides tends to be worth it.
Upcoming book project.
