First I tried a black sharpie approach with a dab of water color. I like the way the sharpie and water color looked together, but I hated the illustration itself. I was trying to make my main character, Sybil, look sick of winter, but she ended up looking more like a bully. That's not how I wanted to portray my main character.
Next I tried oil paints. It's been a while since I've done oil painting and I learned that I'm quite rusty. I had a difficult time with the texture and completely forgot that oil doesn't rinse out with water! Still the final product turned out better than the first I think. I do like the way the puffy pink coat turned out.
Finally I decided to draw just a regular sketch. I couldn't find my drawing pencils so I just used a plain old mechanical pencil, but it turned out okay I think. It's my favorite out of the 3 illustrations so I decided to go with this one. What do you guys think? Was it the right choice?
