Love Not Found group poster I created to bring to conventions. I’ve got 11 x 17 prints of this as well as my other two posters in my new Selz store (soft opening tonight). Also in my store are my Fear My Cuteness shirts and the Boozy the Panda shot glasses!Anyway, on to the artwork! I don’t do a lot of group shots, so this was challenging for me. I kept trying to add another character into the lower right when I was in the sketch stage, but it felt overcrowded. So I opted to fill it with flowers… Monotropa IS the nature lover planet after all. Also, new character! You’ll be meeting this person this week’s pages, I believe. I also tried a few new things with coloring this time around. In LNF, I tend to use solid colors, so it was fun to work with gradients. I liked Ivy’s hair (bottom left) so much that I ended up using the same technique in the chapter six cover art.
