About the design
on December 1, 2008
Hi...thanks for scoring my design! This is a collaboration with my 19 year old son, Zach, who made a significant contribution to the project by greatly improving upon my initial concept and sketch in subtle and wonderful ways! He really had the knack for how to draw the sun's rays (my version was much less spindly and random) so I ended up letting him do the line drawing for the piece, then I did all the pen/cross hatching work as well as the color work in Photoshop. The original finished drawing is about 22 x 30 inches in size, so it had to be scanned and pieced in Photoshop in 12 sections! All my designs are hand-drawn and colored in Photoshop.
Thanks also to all those who made helpful suggestions in the critique:) Hope you enjoy this!
