I'm pretty happy with both! My instructor really liked the second one, which is a supposed to depict Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who introduced the "Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ" to the church. He recommended I re-do the first one. For the assignment, I had to make 2 illustrations with one being done in any style and the other realistically rendered. He thinks the first would be more successful if I just did it in my own style, and I completely agree. Another project to do over spring break!
I'll try to post the individual process for both illustrations next week! For both I had to go through a thumbnail, sketch, sketch, line drawing, value paintings, then final colors done digitally.
