That is an entry for my college's notebook cover art contest. I spent approximately 20 hours on it, the whole process was recorded and shortened to a mere 9 minutes. I won the contest last year with this image: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIDQfr... . It was really cool to see thousands of students carry my picture around (and often loudly comment on how weird it is). I am hoping I can win a second time, even though I will no longer be in college when the new notebook is printed!
Regardless, it was a lot of fun to work on. I think I improved quite a bit in illustration while working on this. Hope you like it!
