Tim’s Mucha/Terra Mash-Up

I’m about 95% sure this is done, so I’m posting it and going to sleep on it. Here’s a few process shots...


Loved trying to mimic the beautiful typography that Mucha used. He employed so many different styles it was tough to settle on one.


After I got to this point it took a lot of courage to start the inking on Terra.


It took another leap of faith to add color, but I did a high resolution scan at this stage just in case I ruined it.


Since I did some of the work on this live in a Google+ Hangout, I think you should all enjoy Terra’s love-letter to G+, Hangin’ Out

I used just about every drawing and painting tool in the kit for this image, including pencils, Micron pens, Pitt pens, watercolor pencils (w/wash), regular colored pencils, gold acrylic ink (w/nib pen) and Copic markers! I think it all paid off and I can’t wait to see what you guys do with it next!

Speaking of which...where does this get sent off to?

Yes, Barbara, this will be crossing the pond as they say sometime next week. Looking forward to seeing what wonders will unfold within its pages.

I’m blown away by all the gorgeous work in this group so far!
