Cheltenham Illustration final colour test

Goya was a major inspiration for the piece

The in art on this ambitious piece was very challenging trying to reinterpret the techniques of the old etching masters like Gustave Dore while giving it a personal edge.

I felt some of the finished lines looked flat or inconsistent with the design and composition but this colour dropping I did seems to hide those floors in the work and instead crate a tense surreal scene. 

see if it can work in black and white

getting there! I like the B&W one below the colour one. I think the key is to make sure that the digitally dropped colour doesn't overly feel digital, and that you make the most of your drawing talent.
