I used a different illustration technique on this one, doing a digital painting instead of my usual linework with colour underneath. This is only my second digital painting, and once I got into the groove with it I had a lot of fun. I tried to get an authentic, traditional look by painting it as I would a regular painting - just using small round brushes on one layer, and working it up.
Here is a detail. Please click for a closer look...
I didn't save any of my progress, but here is the sketch, below.
