Recently I've been sort of unsatisfied with everything that I was doing. I think I hit that time when you start hating everything you've made, even when you liked it a month ago– I think a lot of artists can share that sentiment. I was feeling a little frustrated but today I finally finished a page I'm really proud of.
Here are some pictures that document the progression:
I started by inking a pencil drawing and then painting it with watercolor. I added finishing touches with gouache, color pencil, marker, and pen. It may not look like much but this one page took me 2 days to complete. Man, art is a craft that takes so much longer than what people give it credit for.
While working on this, I had the thought that this might make a nice first page...
