Okotto, Nago, Beautiful and Strong

A few months ago I have the absolute pleasure for creating work for a Miyazaki Tribute show at SketchPad Gallery in San Francisco. I decided I'd illustrate Nago from Princess Mononoke in his peaceful form, before he lost himself. I produced two original pieces in the creation of this illustration; a pencil and a painting.

The pencils I use tend to be on the softer side and don't do well with lots of painting over top, especially on a painting this detailed. So instead, once the pencil is finished, I scan it in and reprint it as a giclee print on hot press watercolor paper. This way, I can preserve my pencil work underneath the gouache. 

I tend to layer quite a bit with gouache, staining and building up values slowly. Overall, this piece took about 3-4 days to complete. Here's the final image: 

The final image measures 9x12 and is gouache on hot press watercolor paper. Thanks so much for looking!
