A work-in-progress belated birthday gift to
In honor of her ventures into new and exciting art mediums during 2009, I opted to draw this picture entirely in raster-based GIMP [the exception being the preconcept sketch which was still drawn in Inkscape, but since it was also done freehand it looks too dreadful to post).
Suffice to say, since it's been almost 6 years since I've used a raster-based program for 100% of an illustration, to say I'm "rusty" is an understatement.
Not saying whos who and what's what, since most of the fun of this drawing is making Bella & Co. answer that themselves.
Currently this picture is 30% complete.
