This was my second pass at this image (the original I had started a while back, about 10-15 minutes in) and I decided to start over because I felt that I was struggling too much with the previous version. Normally I work on an image and the process is very organic. The moment I have to start working then re-working an aspect I just *know* that I'm trying too hard to make it flow. When that happens, I usually abandon the image all together or sometimes I just start over. Damn dinosaurs.
Teen Titans producer Glenn Murakami (lookit' me - name droppin', beeyotch!) saw the original and said I lost the intitial drawing's depth; that I had pulled off foreground, middleground, and background elements in the old version better. I compared the two and I believe that he's right. But hey - that was 90 minutes ago, I've moved on to the next mistake, yeah?
