Better living through technology....
printed out a jpeg of the image, and did a few color sketches this morning, to try and figure out the clouds.... this is after pulling out about 20 cloud references and looking up a few more on the web and printing them out. My final cloud scheme is a compilation of about 5 sources, embellished. The original plan was to do little international children putti heads w/wings circling round at the top, but decided that it would be too busy for the composition. Now firming up the lines on the sketch for the transfer. This is tedious process that will surely take all afternoon, possibly into this evening: first go over alll the major lines on the front, darkening them up, then turn the drawing over and trace those lines on the back. I will slice the cartoon in half to make the transfer a bit less unwieldy.
