I like this draft more. Textured, halftoned, changed the color palette to American retro to clash with its geometric Japanese vibe. I need to add more dimension and more elements somewhere but if this is the final thing, I'm happy. I'll probably leave it alone for a while.
First draft. I'm having problems with this one. Illustration is 80% done. Hastily painted on halftones just to see how it would look like a bit textured. I'll probably figure out what I don't like about it over the weekend, and hopefully finish a second draft. This is an illustration of me trying to chase summer. I'm a beach girl to the core and I'm kind of refusing spending Christmas in a cold country. But anyway, here's the full The Endless Summer II movie (after the cut) to keep us all warm this season. It's my favorite Summer movie.
