Finishing the beast off!
Finishing up the black line today. Off to the client and then color!

YEAR END REVIEW #2: When @marvel contacted me it was both an honor and a huge responsibility to represent the brand and the characters! The very first illustration I did was Iron Man and quickly realized (once rejected) what I could and could not do. A great many lessons learned to which I will carry forward in to 2018!
YEAR END REVIEW: I live in a constant state of reflection followed by forecasting / dreaming up what’s next. Being insatiable has its pros and cons trust me! I started 2017 with several goals. One was to spend more time on the illustrative process. I needed to push. This pirate was one of the first (of many) to kick it off! 2018 goals are HUGE! Plotting the course!
I’m not leaving 2017 without a fight! About half way done! #vector #vectorillustration #vectordesign #vectorart #tiger #tigerstyle #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #sweyda
Should be finishing up this week!
