I really can't remember when this started, maybe a year ago now, but I decided to work on some illustrations for a story for a friend. Joseph Ulrich is the author and you can learn more about him at http://www.josephulrich.com
I'm adding this post now that I've already finished the 14 paintings, and have begun lettering but I'm gonna pretend I'm just starting out so I can make this a little more interesting.
I started with Joe's story and some thumbnails. Here are some of the final thumbs I went on from the beginning.
