I layed in some colors going for a certain look in my mind but not knowing exactly what I wanted.
I started coloring in between the lines, hoping and aiming to establish a sense of space.
This is the first of many layout attempts I did on tracing paper.
I designed each pose individually until i had what I wanted. then I transfered it to the board using graphite.
I began in my sketchbook, by drawing my family from photos, and a very sloppy layout sketch.
The project was very rewarding and I was motivated the whole way through because it's something like I've never done, and cuz it made me remember the old homestead and all my loved ones.
