It's been ages since I've been a part of Creative Tuesdays and thought it fitting to hop back on board now that classes are done for awhile. Although my plate is running over with project work, I felt it would be good to be a part of an art co-op that would continue to push my creative brain. This piece is definitely outside of my comfort zone but enjoyed designing it...all the way down to the gum drop vines wrapped around the tree. Hee
In the final stages of this piece, in order to add the right detail, I used a combination of tools: White gel pen, Copic Markers, Staedtler colored pens, and my black Zig Millenium 01. Usually, I'll lay down my white spots first and then paint. This time, I chose to add the white last, which provided a bit more 'pop' to the final illustration overall.
