I choose to do Alan and Sin because I hadn't drawn Sin yet, and I really like her. She's a very fun character.
Overall, I'm super happy with this piece and the whole set of illustrations for the books. The series was amazing, and I had so much fun making the illustrations for it. It was super fun to talk to the lovely author as well, Sarah's a total sweetheart. I suggest all of you pick up any of her books, they are all well worth the read!

Where to find me:
Cons: The man's face is suffering some construction problems. First his jaw swoops up to sharply which is a feminine trait, males tend to have a jaw line that goes straight back and then turn at a sharper angle. The glasses are not communicating well as glasses and instead are coming off like a malformed eye that is to close to the bridge of his nose.
Other than those points I have made this is a very strong piece.
I painted his hair solid black and then went back in and erased out of it. This piece was entirely done with the brush tool and the eraser tool in Photoshop.
