I've promised myself that I'll post in-process work here as it's coming together, and so I shall!
It might actually help motivate me to keep sketching to figure this piece out and eventually finish it- I've been itching to take some of the Jellybots characters and put them in a full illustration...set the tone for the style of the world and not just the characters' heads-and-shoulders :)
...and after that very chatty post, I figure I owe you all some pictures. So here you go! These are just early sketches...and only a few that I liked, at that. I've still not solved the composition and concept...but it's nice to get something down. More soooon!
