Scared the crop out of me
JUNE 24, 2016
I was pleased (and surprised) to be able to introduce some textures reminiscent of the originals which were printed in a multitude of colors from hand-rendered plates. The credit for the orange peel goes to Adobe's Illustrator's distort/glass filter and the shading on the leaves, to the Andromeda Screens plug-in in Photoshop.
As always, I'm only trying to define the composition in rough sketches. I get the details worked out in the finished art if I am lucky. So, I can do many sketches which lets the AD play the fun game of "what if we took this from this sketch and this from that sketch...etc.?" -which we did with this job.
