This is something I did for last term for Illustration. It is in "le style Mucha" with some Celtic elements. I realize the designs around the edges suck, and the type sucks, but I hadn't taken typography at that point, hahah. It's done in watercolour/gouache, and I halfassed it the weekend before it was due because I lanned world of warcraft the entire time AND was sick ontop of that, and I went to bed at 2am and got up at 4am to finish it before school. IT WAS A GRAND TIME.
Also I had a FUCK of a time trying to get the segments to line up in photoshop (the actual size is like 20x16 or something) from when I scanned it in pieces. I don't know why but some areas were warped which meant I had to free transform it, and I eventually got sick of things never lining up because once I lined one thing up, another thing would disalign. So this is as good as the scan's gonna get, I'm afraid. Haha.

So I was really happy with this before I coloured it.
It's a "route to" something project we had in school (in my case I did the route to Egyptian mythology) and we had to find something to emulate or inspire us. I decided to use Josh Cochran because he is rad. It took me a long time to do the linework and I was really happy with it, but I didn't think to scan it or anything before I started on it with the markers, and I was... less than satisfied with the result, so I fiddled in Photoshop a bit and think I may have managed to salvage it a bit by massively tweaking the colours and blending in the smudgy lineart with a papyrus texture.
What do you guys think? I think the only part I like is the Anubis. Because he has dimension, and I like the way I stylized his face. Too bad it got mauled by dark purple marker.
