By testing my ability to complete an image, start to finish, I’ve been working on this piece and timing myself, while reaching certain states of completion (sketch, line art, grey-scale, and eventually color). At about 8 hours, I’ve reached grey-scale, and I couldn’t be happier with the progress. Although that sounds like a lot of time, full pieces with backgrounds and multiple characters are a rarity, so given this has one main character and thirteen visible zombies, I’d say that’s pretty damn good! Plus inking and shading.
Basically, I’m super proud of myself. Now I just hope that when I’m done, and I have the new commissions list made, this will pay off! Either way, super happy so far!
