Colors (technique experiment)


Yes, I know I could have posted a smaller pic, but you can't always get what you want.
This is 5X7, done primarily as an experiment to test my (skill-free) color technique. My upcoming magazine cover requires this kind of approach, so I figured I should try to get it right. I think this one might make a decent birthday present for my sister.

Damn, my magnifying glass is in the other room. Looks good though. I like the fold where the stars are, that looks really good.

I'll post the link here, Diane...don't you worry! Along with WIPs for the cover art (tho not before publication for obvious reasons)!!
