This is actually my second marker comp for the 3 image gouache montage. I pretty much just changed the background (this one looks WAY better) and some of the shading and colors on the candle. I'm excited to start working on this! I think the colors work to pull the three items together. I think it's a fun, random collection of objects too! One frustration I had with the markers, though, is that they don't blend very well. This background looks better than my first, but I'm planning on the real illustration to have a smoother background that blends together more than this.
