The School of Visual Storytelling has a 3rd Thursday illustration contest every month. This is my third time participating. Top illustrations get prizes from the SVS store and a critique. I'm always open to constructive criticism so if my piece gets picked then that would be great. These contests seem to be oriented towards children's book and art, so I'm wondering how I might work that in to what I typically do, which is editorial illustration.
This illustration was created with watercolor, gouache, pen, brush, and ink.
