Well, I finished my entry for the SCBWI Tomie DePaola contest this morning. I am feeling a bit frustrated, because when I was painting this, the values were more distinct and separated. I could see the outlines of all the bats, but when I turned it into a jpg, and things got really black. Argh! Oh well. I had lots of fun doing this project. I first did this sheet of thumbnails and ended up going with the idea from C1.
