I've been working on the trees for a couple weeks. I tested out different mediums to see what is the most cost effective, what looks the best, and what is the most amusing to touch. Oils have the best feel, but I think doing it all in oils would be too costly. Especially for a start up project. I gotta' see if it still feels good if I paint it over the caulking glue. Henna feels good too, but I need to see if I can change the color somehow.
I'm really happy with my character, and I can't wait to start illustrating some of his adventures.
I will post all the work that I make here, but will also save it in my artwork galleries for quick browsing. Have fun.
