Alright...so this is something that I was working on for our annual St. Patty's Day party that is hosted at my partents house...there have been invitations for each year. This is the second invitation that I have done...since I have no freelance at all.
The final illustration is pretty sellable, but I like my initial sketches more (as usual). As it turns out...even my parents had requests to look younger. I really thought that there was much more character and interest in the earlier sketches, but hey, they are my parents and I love them...so I reduced the jowels and shaved off some of the turkey waddle...and there you have it.
There are some things that I would do differently, but that will have to wait until the next time. I may add some detail to my mom's hair, and perhaps post the final card once my dad does the graphic design for it. Maybe I can dig up some old invitations as a comparison?
