i did what i could with very limited clips


I need to work on a digital painting commission, but I’ve recently discovered that my monitor colors may not be calibrated correctly.  Seems many of my blues look greenish.  Anyway, I’m recalibrating it tomorrow, so in the meantime, I figured I’d work on my Richard II today.  Here you can see my idea taking shape.  I did a similar t-shirt design with this quote, but it was for a contest where you had to reinvent someone’s photo, so I was very limited in what I could do.  I’ve always liked the idea of Richard inside an hourglass, but I’ve never been happy with the other drawing, since it’s kind of a hot mess in terms of composition and execution.  Hopefully this will eventually do the quote justice.  It’s my favorite quote from the play.
