A Tall Ship, A Taller Squid

This week I worked on a project for Tacoma Art Supply. There is a fleet of tall ships coming to Tacoma and they wanted a poster to sell at their booth that had a nautical theme. The challenge was the limited time I had to work on it as the event is coming fast. Here is an example of three stages my projects go through. The comp was a very loose sketch about eight inches tall. Both the inking and the color final was done at one 100% to fit on a 17 by 22 sheet.
