This is one of my favorite pieces I’ve done ever. The layout is a little generic, and I got the idea after seeing a few similar to this one on Deviant Art (don’t ask me which, I can’t remember. If you created one of the originals, e-mail me a link and I’ll post it.) But the reason why I’m so proud of this, even though there are some look-alikes, is because of what it’s made out of.
First off, it is hand-drawn, just like everything else I do. No pads or CGI here. The drawing is done with pencil, and the shadows are graphite powder. But the coloring was done with a number of spices and foodstuffs including cocoa-powder, curry, cinnamon, basil and sage, just to name a few. Unfortunately, it was finished early in Fall of 2011 and was also covered in fixative so it doesn’t smell as spectacular as one might expect.
