My Contest entry for the "Draw it again contest" If I can find time, I'll do another one. This was actually sort of fun.

A lot of experimenting, trial and error lead me to what I'm trying to hone as my new art style--anime meets photo manipulation. I've seen pictures where people just take a drawn picture and slap it on top of a real life background and it just looks weird. I'm trying to find a way to unify the real world with the things that we create. This is the style of art I hope to have in upcoming Tales of Atonement books.
From blank paper to finished product, the original took approx. 1 1/2 hours. New version approx. 9 1/2 hours.
I've never seen art done the way I'm doing it, so I'd really appreciate some input.
