Starting a new illustration to show at the WTOH conference in September. I want to do a step by step of my new media. This is an African folktale about a Turtle tricking an elephant. In this scene, turtle is enticing elephant with a succulent plant.
I started with a small sketch on a post it to get a quick layout. I scanned the post it, and enlarged it, then redrew it and added the trees and the background, adding detail that I could not get in the small doodle.
