The Morrigan

It's been a while since I did a process. So I think The Morrigan piece I recently did for the sketchcard set Classic Mythology would be a nice one to show. (in case you would like one of the promo cards, you can goto this site for more info:

Here you can see me feeling out the elements, the feathers, the pose and the ravens. Although you will see in this initial drawing, I had a third raven in the foreground. I thought that the raven took away from the overall image so I decided to nix it. In it's place, I will eventually add a cape. The raven made the image a bit claustrophobic. I think I should have left more room to the sides as well. In my head I was thinking .2 inches border for the final card, but forgot to scale it up since this was done on a 11x 17 page. oops. We fudged some stuff in the end to make it work hehe.
