In week 8, our assignment was to combine everything that we had learned over the past few weeks into a full illustration. We were encouraged to use one of our thumbnails from week 7, but I didn't really like how the backgrounds in my thumbnails turned out. Instead I decided to do an illustration of an idea that I had last Christmas for a picture for my sister. She's a big fan of the show Spartacus and anything gladiator related, so I decided to make a slightly more festive version of that by using gingerbread men. I was a little strapped for time this last week, because I was out of town for CTN but I got as much done as I could. I generally like how it turned out, but it could still use a lot of polishing.
