Something a little different.
Opaque/Latex with a 5' x 8' scale. I created mural for my daughter's new room.
She had a specific idea and as a client she was quite particular about the design. I wonder where she get's that?
The application process
It was interesting to change gears, a great exercise. The problem solving and the design process remain the same. But the application is completely different. It reminds me of the design steps and forces me to NOT skip a step. Since I'm not used to this process I can't be lazy.

But, the image isn't working.... too busy.
It was fun to pull out the old markers. I used to love preparing comps with these.
Photoshop is great, but it was fun to color again.
After carefully blocking out the wall into 12" x 12" squares I blocked in the design block by block. It's hard to see, but I traced a grid on the wall with pencil. It's the secret to taking a small image and keeping it to scale when you enlarge.
A little more detail. It's very graphic at this point, sharp contrast.
Wow, that was scary!
