paints and pens, stuff i've made

Pomp & Circumstance, ver.2

What I did on Easter Sunday and Monday: Repainted the H.M.S. Pomp & Circumstance on a larger canvas.

I loved the idea of a city-ship with an animal figurehead, lurching through green waves and clouds, but the first version of this illustration was too small (5″ x 7″) and a bit cluttered. I’ve streamlined my ideas, since, and cleaned up my city, and am liking this version much better!

My apologies to those of you who purchased a Society6 print of the first version and now feel cheated! I just couldn’t help myself, after I saw the bigger Society6 prints, and how terrible the tiny image, enlarged to 13″ x 16″ and every bump of canvas showing, looked… (Psst! Moonike, message me!)

    Aww, am actually rahter happy with the first version of Pomp&, although this 2nd version is incredible as well. Love your style! I do feel like wanting to collect ‘em all :D
    I’m waiting for the shipping of “Legends Meet” at the moment, also tiny version, I’ll let you know how the print of that turned out.
