Heigh Ho!

Another illustration that's been a long time coming. I used the same basic strategies that I employed in the cyclops piece from the last illustration post. I seem to be fixating on these very dark scenes lately- but I've got a more light-hearted composition in the works. I've listed the final first, an alternate palette, then some color studies, sketches, the ink on acetate drawing and finally the watercolor. Hope you like it!

Enough complaining- on with the work:
