So instead of working on client work, like I was supposed to, I allowed myself to spend a day drawing something fun. I picked up this digital sketch I had started two months ago but never finished:
This was inspired by vintage photographs of "gypsies." (In quotation marks because some of these are actual Roma people and some are just ladies in costumes.) I love vintage photographs. They always spark stories in my mind.
I've been enjoying using digital pencils lately, and thought the black & white scheme would fit the vintage setting. I knew I wanted lots of texture, lots of patterns and details, but still with a focus on the fortune teller.
I'm very happy with how this came out, and feeling better about getting back to client work.
