Small update. It's ready to be transferred to the 12 x 16 hardboard.

Thanks for the links! Rain song has to be one of my favorite Zeppelin songs.

And good timing, too. The 9th is Jimmy Page's 65th :D

Hey, is this entirely pencil or is there a digital element to this drawing? either way, its a great start.

VRizo: :D

Chad: there are some digital elements in the semi final. the bg is pencil then duplicated, and the shading was great enhanced by photoshop airbrush.

what you see in the photo is actually four pieces of paper taped together on top or carbon paper. the image's contrast was brought down to save on ink and make it easier to see when i trace my own work. although i kinda enjoy the very light, low contrast tonal image. i might actually paint it like that.

Hey Jimiyo,

OT, but was wondering if you knew about this t-shirt contest:

I couldn't find your contact detail.

Noice find Rude Retro. I might have to submit, although I am weary/distrusting of external contests beyond the proven DBH, Woot, TL, etc. Thanks!
