I decided to give this illustration a face lift with some of the new techniques I have learned over the years. It is refreshing to see some growth in my abilities from time to time. Here I have graduated from the need of any preliminary line work to rendering completely digitally. It's a jump I never imagined I would ever fully commit too, but here we are! I hope you enjoy the growth as much as you enjoyed the original.
An early exploration with photoshop!
