Work in Progress – Oct 6 2013
I've got the main colors blocked in for the entire piece, and I've really been grinding through pencils. I already placed another order for some of the turquoise colors, which will arrive later this week. There's a few shadow areas with bare black paper showing on the left, but the pattern is penciled in. This entire area of the picture will be much darker than it is now and I realized I was probably going to end up stripping off some pigment if I blocked it in solid now, so I'll wait until the other values are refined before working this area. It's a bit of a relief having all of the folds and pattern stripes mapped out. This will let me focus on filling in the colors and values next.
