ODM: Piece de resistance
Ok, hyperbole aside ("piece de resistance"), this final figure illustration took an intense amount of time and is also the piece of which I am most proud. I was working on it until around 11:30 (pm) the night before deadline. I saved it for last, knowing the hairy technical details and the fact that there would be subject matter I had never addressed visually before would make this piece the most challenging and consequently the most fun. I know, the idea that a potentially tedius technical illustration is the epitome of a good time for me likely signifies a need for some kind of perscription medication, but what can I say? In the words of Popeye, "I yam what I yam."
So, without further ado, here it is (along with a reference image).
