WIP January 2016

I'm working on a project and I think it could turn out very well.
It's always interesting to know what is behind a final illustration.
So I would like to share with you a WIP ( Work In Progress).
As you can see, I've made 4 sketches of the same subject, but only one will be chosen.

More details soon.
