I didn't do her justice, she (ms. tree) was ten times more graceful and twenty times more beautiful in real life. Never use B on top of H pencils, the H creates a wax surface that fills up the tooth of the paper. If you have to, be extremely gentle with "H"er.
Try to communicate always with the piece, take her for a walk, a slow stroll, and speak words of beauty instead of technical words as she unfold before your eyes.

More thumbnails for anxious clients. First one is for a movie poster, pretty straightforward project, two guys and a girl, catchy. Second one is for a CD illustration with a diagram/blueprint feel showing the idea of illumination and elimination. Abyss explorers is my take on the idea. It's a rather loose interpretation but it felt right for some reason.

I couldn't make myself put another stroke on this piece. Simple as it may seem, this is the first time I actually felt that I cannot add or subtract anything from a piece to make it better. Felt like the shape is complete and "alive." Strange feeling. I hope it's a sign of maturity in making design judgments.
