TA-DAAA! Ok, well it's MOSTLY finished. I know I'll go back and tweak things a little here and there - I usually do. But, I don't think I would alter very much at this point and I can officially step away from it.
I like how the cape turned out on the textured paper - it has the feel of thick, heavy wool or something like it. You can really see the difference in between the original sketchbook drawing on smooth paper (below left) and the final (below right).
Like I mentioned in the previous post, this project forced me to look at paper a little more carefully - it can really have an impact. While it worked well for the darker cape, I battled more with the coat on the short figure. I'm still not sure I'm satisfied. Perhaps I need to go over it again - go for a little less contrast. I don't know - maybe I've just been staring at it too long today.
