Illustration Process

I am currently working on an illustration for a friend of mine’s blog. The piece will be used as a new title header and is composed of some text and a wee bit of illustration. I am very pleased with what I came up with for the drawings but I am still tweaking it in order to find the right balance between text and image. I want the text to read as the strongest element but so far I feel that the figures are over powering it.

Once I get it to her and she is pleased with the results I will post some process pictures and one of the finished work. I am working on paper with watercolor and since there is no undo button in real life I’ve already gone through several attempts on a few different bits of paper. Wish me luck that I don’t ruin too many pieces of watercolor paper in the process. However, I must say I am enjoying stepping into the studio room and finding my desk littered over with sketches and paintings for this.
