Finished the coral spread, here's the initial painting that got scrapped, and the new improved version plus details.
It isn't for a specific story or childrens book im writing, but I just tried to illustrate the phrase
'no one likes a copycat.'
And because I haven't ever done an underwater scene, then I thought it about time I did one. it was difficult!
Here's the underpainting for the scientific report cover. Why it is a2 size I really don't know. Hopefully I can get it finished in time for New York.
Still in the luminous green stage, this will be toned down massively in the next stage or the final stage of painting.
