For Gurney Journey (1) - Egg Singers
Lately I've been participating in Jim Gurney's ABC challenge. Every Wednesday Jim posts a small excerpt from a science fiction manuscript and we are asked to illustrate it out of context. It's time I posted here a few of my entries. This one's text was “Their voices were high-pitched, piercing…but human.” For this one I actually did a couple of versions, but ended up deciding on the smaller crop. The big one works ok on paper but on the form factor of and ordinary screen it loses a lot (you either see the whole but no detail or you have to scroll - anyway, you lose focus and impact). You gotta consider the medium.
