So I was going to post the civil war stuff today, but since I just finished the final drawing for Applefest this afternoon, I figured I'd show that instead. I've been talking about it here for months, after all. The premise this year is a 1920s-ish tea party. I wanted to move forward from last year while still making sure a lot of the feeling stayed the same. I also wanted to draw adults this year. I've wanted to do an image like this for quite a while, and so I kind of worked it into the assignment. I had a lot of fun with this drawing, so it took a little longer than usual.
I'll post with more soon. The final painting should be finished sometime in the next week, but I'm still behind on posting from other projects. Stay tuned!
Sorry I've been remiss in my posting! I've been VERY busy these last few months. I'll stagger some posts and updates over a few days, because blogger makes a 5 image limit, and to make things more exciting.
Above: More spots for Rutgers (I have a double page spread of these things in the September issue, hitting the press in, well, September.) and also more spot work for FDU, which I also think is for the September issue but I am not entirely sure.
Tomorrow: TCNJ stuff, finished (for the Seeeeeeeptember issue!) and the then Applefest progress. I've been promising this for a while, and I'm actually in the middle of it right now. This year is going to be great! It's a 1920s apple tea party!
