I made the illustration on the left back in January. Recently I was reevaluating my portfolio, and considered including this piece. However, I noticed that it looked a bit messy and shabby when placed next to my other paintings. I opened it up in Photoshop and peered at the details.
So I spent a few hours polishing the details on this piece, as well as pumping up the contrast and saturation. This has caused me to go through a few other old pieces and thinking about how I can improve them. I'll post some more of these before-and-afters on the blog later.
