Although Morrigan's pose had been thought up early in the month, it
was only after racking my brain in vain for a better 'scene' - one
where both Aenslands were in the picture, did I finally decide to
use it. It took around an hour to sketch the image (Staedtler HB pencil
on a piece of bond paper that was just lying about), then scanned.
At 150dpi the working image was 1150x1553 in pixel dimensions and
the final file was 12 megs in size. Coloring in PhotoShop took around
20 hours - straight (with lunch & dinner breaks). As you will see,
my submission does not have any lineart over the colors - it was a
technique I had been itching to try out. The image wouldn't be as
good as it is if it wasn't for the assistance of Royce Ramos (see
his submission somewhere above), who helped point out where certain
shadows and highlights should fall.
