Been hearing from lotsa folks that this has been arriving in their mailbox - so guess it's ok to post. This was a really fun project. I was given the magazine's theme for the month, and told to come up with something. I was fairly stressed trying to think up clever ideas - and finally settled on two I thought were alright. At the last minute I thought, I really should have three sketches, and quickly did a sketch of the above. So naturally that's the one they picked! I actually liked this idea best as well.
I wish I'd worked on her hair a bit more so it was more hair-like (less helmet-like), and fixed the center chrysalis that is absolutely in the wrong perspective... oops. Oh well. I hope I get to do this again sometime. All done in photoshop from thumbnails to final.
