Koi Commission - The basic layout

I've now laid out the general composition and done a first layer of colour for every item so I can tell what is what. Its interesting to me how much longer it takes to "explain" things on a large canvas when you have been doing ACEO and other small format pieces for a while.

Hey Michelle,
Isn't it interesting how you can just tell when something is going to be spectacular right from the beginning? The layout on this is so full of movement and alive with color already! You are right- the size does make a difference in terms of story, but also in terms of impact. This one is going to stand out no matter where it is hung. I can hardly wait to see more of it completed. Just lovely, lovely, lovely. :-)
