Here’s the first in progress shot as I was plugging away at this piece. Most of the hard work with these is figuring out the value strings — once that’s done it’s just a matter of rendering, which, really, is the easy part. At this stage I can also tell if my color sensibilities are WAY off, so it’s in my best interest to kind of knock things in.
As far as roughing-in goes, this one went pretty quickly. Next up: the fun stuff!
