15 Minute #12

Back from Holiday Vacation.  The first ever where I don't have to go back to school come January! Yesssss.

As for this session's progress...  Well, you win some, you lose some.  I spent about 3/4 of my time trying something new with the vines only to scrap it all and go in a different direction.  Progress is hard to show when this happens.  I included close ups (before and after) of a section I was able to get done before time ran out.  I think I'm going to refine all the vine lines like this.  I'm also definitely planning to take some out, it got kind of crazy and I don't even have all the foliage in yet.

Needless to say this technique is going to take time!  I started this piece wanting it to just be a concept.  Still loose and fun.  As I go along however, I've gotten more and more detailed.  This isn't a bad thing, just different.  I think it's safe to say this passed the concept line a while back and now sits in the territory of illustration.  Either way it is still very interesting to work on... even if I have to back track every now and then.
