This painting is finally finished!!! I had to finish up the Scholastic book interiors (I never updated about it because the cover still hasn’t been released… anyway it is a biography of George Lucas that comes out in August!!) so it was on the backburner, but finished it this past weekend. I decided to make a blog post that includes progress shots of the piece.
First – see the initial progress at this previous blog post that included an early sketch and the color comp: http://www.albaillustration.com/blog/?p=518
Here is the finished painting, my largest since 2010! The progress images will be below.
Now for the progress shots! There are a lot of them…Click the images to see larger versions. The color is off on all of them… a pain to get accurate photos! The final scanned painting is different from the final painting too… have you ever tried scanning watercolor? It just refuses to capture the nuances… sigh.
