These are photos that I took of the piece to give "Mrs. Ninja" updates on my progress.
This is not the best shot—just a quick click of the camera while it sits on my drawing table.
I took this one under a little better lighting conditions. I'm about 1/3 of the way done on the coloring. I have to work from the top left down to the bottom right so that I don't smear the colored pencil. It has a wax base so it will melt and make quite a mess if I lay my hand across it too long. I always like to see how the coloring really brings the image to life.
I feel bad that it's taking me so long to get this one done, but I feel good about how it's turning out. What do you think?
