Something new

Here's something I doodled whilst at work, waiting for the engine to compile...I like it so far, as it has nothing to do with any of the other little projects I have on the go at the moment!

This was the initial doodle, scanned and slightly corrected. I've started to put the final illo together, basically drawing the character in front of the tree. The idea for the tree will be a cross between a Willow tree, and a Cherry Blossom tree. The little bags attached to the tree are 'Wish Bags', as this is The Wishing Tree. Also to go in are some of the Crow/Vulture Imps, that gather in the tree trying to steal the dreams and wishes placed there. The character in the front can be taken as either a thief, or protector, depending on your persuasion.

I'm having fun with it so far....Here's a roughed up version of it so far...not happy with the composition so far...needs more space at the foot of the tree...Not sure if it will be a fully digital piece, or if I'll print it out and either pencil it on tracing paper, or ink and grey wash it on illustration board...we will have to see! Anyway, here you go....

As usual, thanks for stopping by...feel free to comment!
