IF: Subterranean

Again, I apologize for my time away from this blog. I've been wrapped up in a very lovely project that I can't really talk about just yet. It has been a lot of fun so far.

I am VERY pleased to participate in Illustration Friday this week, however! My attempted participation in the past few weeks has sadly become a pile of thumbnails and unfinished sketches. Not this week! Yippee!

IF: Subterranean

This time around, I painted a bunch of textures and swatches with gouache and acrylic paint, then scanned them in to play with in Painter.

Awesome, Alissa! What a beautiful piece you've created - love those textures! And by the way, I've missed many of your great posts- muddy is so fantastic, as well as Adrift. I can't wait to hear/see your cool project. Congrats! And thank you for popping by..you've been missed!

Wow, the colour palette along with the use of collaging looks really effective. <3
