new moon

Finals are over!
Here's the final piece I did for my independent study with Chris Buzelli. It's based on the new Twilight movie, which I haven't seen but got a detailed summary from my little sister, who is a certified Twilight expert, so I'm pretty confident about my knowledge of what went down in New Moon. Also, I thought since I'd already finished a piece for the first movie, it might make an entertaining, if not interesting, topic for a series if I kept up with the saga. Plus, I felt to need to reintroduce lasers into my work. Just to clarify: the lamb is Bella, the lion is Edward, and the faceless wolf is Jacob.
For the color palette I wanted to give a sense of night without having to make a dark sky. I think I'm pretty happy with the result. Oh, and this is the first time I'm using watercolor for a piece, and I think I'm going to use it for under painting from now on.
