Here they are~~~ Sorry for the horrible SAMPLE across the image, you can find the final finished versions under Sketchbook 2015. I couldn't decide whether to take artistic liberties with Bee or stay true to the original style so I gave the client the option of both. Version 2 was actually drawn first but the more I thought about it I wanted to draw something that looked a little more like Bee. I really love that show ;-; I want to try to draw her more.

Through this whole process the one thing that stood out in my mind was how long it was taking. I believe two years ago both of these would have taken one all nighter. Now it took me over a week? It was a bit disheartening. I haven't been drawing for such a long time that I felt rusty! Though I did feel like I was doing something really great with both pieces. I got to incorporate design with my illustrations and I think it came out pretty good. Version 2 was done completely digitally and version 1 was a mix of traditional and digital. I feel like I'm in a new groove and I'm going to just go with it :)
