Here's the finished image. I think you can deduce what the customer asked for!

18x24 inches

Very classic. A few subtle line weight changes and you could easily fool a lot of people into thinking this was Kirby/Sinnott. Beauty!

Both images are stunning but I do like the final product better. The black areas really add impact to the commission (and help the stars and other sky objects to show up better!)

In the first image posted, the stars are merely droplets of liquid mask, and there is no concern about whether they "show up" or not.    The addition of black does not correct a flaw in the original image.

"Indeed! Working on the coloring book seems to have had an effect on how I do my initial inking, laying down the lines in pen before I pick up the brush.*"

...

Interesting, I believe I will try that process on my next piece.

And WOW! The contrasts really seem to pop. Excellent piece!

As soon as I saw the title, I knew this was going to be a good one! I didn't expect the added bonus of the WIP!
