so i turn this drawing in and the a.d told me that it was too traditional and romantic. they wanted something more playful and exaggerated. i had to bring the gouache out to do this. i rarely use colors straight out of the tube, but i felt it was needed to achieve supreme saturation.
the story is based on two asian lovers. the a.d wanted me to change the hair to black because he looked too american. i like the blond better. she obviously doesn't watch dragon ball z. the right part of the clouds and the mountains are digital.
also got a copy of this months bang art. everything is in italian, so i am curious what those 3 pages are talking about.
