I've decided to post my process for this particular illustration for no other reason than I wanted to try documenting it for myself and I thought other artists might be interested in how I go about finishing an illustration of this scale.
I tell you right now this illustration is going to be really complex-- well at least for me! Lots of characters. Lots of texture. Lots of atmosphere. It'll be a mix of digital and traditional oil. I'll be sure to post the progress with explanations so... wish me luck and here we go.
