Leafy Lane 2003

Here are two views of the same marker sketch. This was done in water-based markers whose dyes fade even when not exposed to light. The one at the top is an older scan and the one at the bottom was done just now. The older one is more like the actual drawing but the newer one is clearer and looks better in my opinion. Markers are difficult to scan anyway. I had to add sky color in Photoshop to restore the newer picture. This is one of the most elaborate on-site marker drawings I've ever done and I've waited seven bloggin' years to post it. Maybe I waited too long with the fading markers.
