Galactic Heroes X-Wing Final

Done! I masked off the stripes, and did a quick overlay of red and yellow, to even out and saturate the colored pencil, deepened the blacks, and created a glass reflection for the canopy. Then a quick pass of pure white for all the highlights...and done.

Overall pretty good. I wish that I took the time to take a more clear original photo, all four cannon heads seem to be different shapes and sizes, but the overall impression is relatively untouched.

On a technical level, I'm finding it's been working out really well to back and forth the media, underpaint, then pencils, for the bulk of the work. Then with minimal time to do some overlays with paint, and detail punch-up with the pencils, it seems to really make it come together in the end.
