Week 2 - Progress 5; Completion!

Alright, there we go! All done, and I must say, I'm once again pleased with it. I'll admit that some of the contrast with the shadows and highlights was added with a photo program, but that aside it's all marker and colored pencils (Prismacolors and Copics for those who want to know).

You know, I love plaid as a pattern but I remembered how much I hate putting it on paper in the midst of this. What was Hidakez thinking when he/she designed those things? Clearly not how big a pain it is to draw them with the stripes actually following the folds and contours (all the official art I see ignores that).

But whatever. I finished something traditional that actually has a background for the first time in forever. I don't know how it'll do in the contest, but to be honest I'm not all that concerned with how I place. I like it and that's the important part.

Music: "Tangled" soundtrack; "I See the Light", various songs from my "Mush" playlist.
