Creating New Bannar and Avatar
I'm working on some ideas for a new banner and avatar for my ArtFire Studio. I'm thinking of something like this sun for my avatar.
Here are two earlier sketches as well. I'm thinking I lke this one the best of the three. I plan to do it on watercolor paper, probably 8" x 8" . The reds need to be a little darker however. Sometimes, watercolor and I are not the best of friends. . .
The big problem I'm having is the ratio - The artfire banner is 1000 pixels wide by 200 tall. I think I'm going to have to do it at 10" x 2" so it will fit the scanner bed. But, that small, is doodling the letters a bit of a pain. So, I'm still thinking on this.
