I spent a pleasant evening working into this sketch again after having abandoned it for about 10 years. I’d got fed up with so many rejection letters that this was one of the last portfolio pieces for quite a while. I think I must have just completed Zone of The Enders 2.
I dug it out again to fill some space on the Wonder poster and I really like what a combination of the Cutout and Poster Edges Photoshop filters did to the pencil work. The rest is brush work with my Intuos and photo montage.
Moral of the story? Don’t throw out your sketchbooks.
