I just wanted to upload this before I forgot. I finished this earlier this week and haven't really had a chance to look at it yet. It turned out better than I hope and I enjoyed the piece. It's fun using the warmer colours that I tend to normally avoid as my colour range is more cool and blues and greens.

I thought I'd show some of the process work for the fall promo. A lot of times, drawing is just drawing different variations until you get one that is alright. I had a few variations of how the set up the scene and settle for this once instead of one that just had them floating there. It honestly took me awhile to get the boy looking the way I wanted 'cause the boy in all these drawings just wasn't agree with me. For the girl, I wanted to just minor variation in her hair and the shape of her head. Subtle things can make a big difference.

I love the way that the ink just flows across the paper and how just manoeuvring the nib changes the stroke of the line. I can do the same thing with a technical pen, but it's not really the same in terms of how I'd try it. So far I've just done some sketching with the nib, but hopefully I'll find the time to do a more fuller illustration to get a better feel of it.
