 After posting my process to the WiPnation forums, where this contest is also taking place, it came to my attention that I had lost a lot of emotion in Princess Leia when it came to the pencil drawing. After doing the color comp I was feeling timid about continuing onto the painting stage, and I am happy I didn't.

Second Draft

In the original Leia is obviously more surprised/shocked by seeing Vader and his torture droid, however after getting a crit my original pencil drawing made Leia look more in control. So I took my drawing back to the drawing board and made the correction. I moved her arm up so it looks more like she is cowering, or trying to shield herself. I also changed the expression on her face, which was my main cause for not going to paint.

First Post of The New Year! A WIP

Its a new year, and already there are some projects to be had. In light of playing some SWOR and enjoying a little spiked cider, there are a couple of gallery events that have a call for art. The first is for pin-up work and while I have a piece drawn out I have yet to post it. The second is a call for pulp art, which is what I have posted below.

Color Comp

Mock Cover
I'm planning on painting this in watercolor, and because of the large amounts of black I decided to do a digital color comp just to be safe. I did consider inking this in but am hesitant since doing so may give this more of a comic book feel. I am also not sure at this point if I will add in the type or not. If I do it will be done digitally. Anyways....back to work!
