Attention Odyssey Project mods!
If you need this image in a larger size, please let me know! As I am selling prints, I have set it to not allow downloads of the large original image!

Submission for Odyssey Project II chapter 3 (runner up). Super fun to work on this chapter.
I actually took some time and really tried to do a proper painting, instead of merely laying down some random color as a background for my lines. Painting and color palette choice are weaknesses for me, which I am aware of. Taking this into consideration, I think I did a good job.
Which is why it's a shame that it didn't scan properly...
Usually I use hot pressed paper, which has a smooth texture, and it scans beautifully. In fact the scans look better than the originals, I find! But I'm running out of it, so I used cold pressed paper which has a much rougher texture. The rough texture messes with the scanner lights, and it never scans as nicely, no matter what settings I fool around with. A lot of subtle detail gets lost in the scan. And I didn't have the time or motivation or skill to photograph it. Too busy this weekend. I'm hoping that you all still like it. After all, you don't have the original to compare it to!
(I see that I suddenly have been given a premium membership for one month, so I am "requesting critique" for this deviation. I welcome critiques on all my work. I miss the in-depth, unflinching crits I used to get while in art school. One detailed explanation of something you don't like and how you would fix it is SO MUCH more useful than a million short "I like this!" comments. Not that I don't appreciate those too, of course. Just feel free to tell me what's not working. How else am I supposed to get better?)
