It took me 1 year to finish the sketch of the first puzzle. It's the most wonderful process. An illustration game where I can edge my artistic development all the time. Try different perspectives, use shading to trigger my fantasy. And the key is, to get to know my prestige, my fear of what others might think, self judgment. Daaamn that's poison.
After a hellrun of negative emotions, all of a sudden I slip into the precent moment. I don't think, I see! This is the part when I'm laughing at my own jokes and time flies. Characters appear from nowhere.
It's always hardest in the end of a project. This is when I'll have I reach the goal. The old prestige wont make it an easy game to win. Sometimes I try to find a character for weeks. Nothing happens. I can't see anything.
But after all, I do practise self love. Eventually I'll make it happen. And when you let go of the trouble, the solution's always waiting on the other side. Paradox.

Coloring work in Photoshop. This is another part of the creative work. It's more like work work. Find colors, styles, brushes. It takes 1 day to color 1 character.
