This was a quick sketch I did for a larger project that is in the works. This took about 20 minutes total (10ish for drawing and 10ish for painting). I'm sure it's quite obvious that I did this quickly, as I didn't even stay in the lines the whole time(^_^;), but my goal was to come up with a good design for the Pied Piper and to test the colors and background treatment. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome,and I haven't uploaded artwork in an eternity and a half, so here it it ^.^
The project is for my Watercolor class, and I was to choose or make up a children's story and illustrate two pages of it. I picked the Pied Piper of Hamelin, and this is the concept for the first page. I promise there are more rats in the real one, I was just getting an idea of how everything would look. Kinda loses the effect with only two, though...
So I will probably post a picture of the finished product soon. The first page is done and the second one is drawn and inked, but still needs painting.
Hope you like it!
