That, sir, is absolutely delightful.
The Shelley/Rainstorm ratio makes the poster more drear than previously. Smile for all of us, Ms. Winters!
That's what happens when I "work something up", CHristian, I subconsciously destroy anything people might have liked about it. It's my gift!
Personally, I like the combination of sunny Shelley and rainy world. I like the railway arches, too - adds a certain faded industrial charm.
Iit did lose something that the original had in redrawing it. I knew it would though. I am not very fond of the most distinctive features of my own artwork when I prepare a finished "piece" which has led to me drawing figures tiny. I think it probably speaks to some psychological issue! When I look at a comic I've drawn, I am always 95% happy with the figures and the faces; when I make a print, my urge is to bury everything I like in my comic art because artistically that is not "legit". That way I create something that is neither fish nor fowl that no one really wants.
I feel exactly the same about the way I draw... though nobody much sees mine, so I don't get any feedback. Maybe I should stick my head above the parapet.I've always admired your verve with line, and it's never occurred to me to question your artistic legitimacy!
For what it's worth, I purchased that fantastic "Smiles, Dreams One-Two Punch" poster for my redheaded little sister last year. I loved it and my sister liked it - which is as much approval as can be coaxed from a teenager.
