First sitting of outlines for this sleeve. Unfortunately the client has decided at the last moment to eliminate the hummingbirds, which I had thought of as filler elements. It’s a shame, in my opinion, because they would have made the design richer and more interesting, but I never insist too much if the client proves to be determined. I just hope I won’t end up hearing yet another “You were right.”
Given the elimination of the hummingbirds I have redesigned the dragon’s tail freehand and, also freehand, have redesigned other small areas that were obviously different on paper.
Now we wait to proceed in the upcoming sessions.
