This was a late entry for the contest...but worth the effort I think. I made a high res scan of the inked drawing before trying to color with watercolors. It's a good thing, too...because I ended up rushing it and ruining the drawing. I thought I could wing the color design / etc. and it turned out ugly. So I went for the digital coloring which worked out much more nicely because I could try different things without permanently marking it. I suppose that's what prelims are for historically....but I never liked to over-do a fresh idea. That is why I failed. Anyways, the end turned out very well! Tell me what you think--and if you live in or near Grand Rapids you can vote on your favorite artwork (and drink delicious beer) at Founders, Tuesday April 21 between 5PM and 8PM.
