Victorian Escape!

So this is the final watercolor result of something I'd eventually like to use for the cover of my Kindle 2. As it stands I really enjoy the image as a narratively terse, stand-alone illustration. I've been working on some more t-shirt contest artwork that I shall dutifully post as they are finished, and I've also been starting some preliminary work on the pin-up girls for my new film gig. I'll ask the director if I can put up some of those images as well.

On this illustration specifically - I love the bright tones you can get from using the Japanese Sumi-E watercolor set by Yasutomo. You can get really slick, thick patches of paint that definitely pop off the page.

Harrowing heroine hounded (by hirsute pursuants)! Live telegraph feed at eleven!
