Okay, so here we have the final sketch in blue. Much clearer and more balanced I think. I didn't like the way the vendor's elbow was jammed off the edge of the page, it made him look cramped. So I moved the edge over a few inches to give him more breathing room. I then added the pole to the umbrella as well and removed the writing on the cart. Let's see what else..I put a SHIRT on the elephant. He looked creepy without one and it was giving me the willies. The kid's legs were too short, so I lengthened them and added some meat on their bones. No Waif children in MY art ;-) I then lowered the horizon so it didn't cut the kids in half so awkwardly. Ewww..cut the kids in half?? I know there's a better way to say that but can't think if it, sorry. I think that's about it for changes. Oh yeah, added a hat on the girl to add interest. Now let's hope and pray to God above that this darn thing turn out well in color. I need a good postcard image, stat!
Oops, forgot to mention the mirror image. I did that with photoshop to get a fresh view and after printing it out as a reference, preferred it over the other.
What's with the stinkin' spell check not working on blogger? *groan* And I'm such an awful speller too. Ah well. Oh, found an online spell check, how nice. Worcks grate tew. <---oops! ;-)
