Reworking the Old into Something New

From the Studio #5

Sometimes you create and image and love it then come back years later and wounder why you did. Other times you abandon it part way through because something just doesn’t look right or you just plain hate it. You then come back and decide it wasn’t that bad and finish it up or turn it into something new.

Rose Goblin Re-imagined

Last year I did this painting of Spike, the Rose Goblin from my friend Seanan McGuire’s book Rosemary and Rue.

I decided to rework the illustration for Illustration Friday’s topic Spooky. I also used this image as a chance to use some of the new brushes I made for Painter 11.
