We'll never know how the original background might have looked had I continued with it. But the new background went through several iterations before I settled on this burst pattern. This is the completed model of Greyhound Burst.
I had done two running Greyhounds which were introduced in September 2012. They turned out to be a lot more popular than I had anticipated, with sales at the end of July having reached eighty eight. In fact seventeen were sold this week alone. So staying with that as a subject, I moved in to focus on the face and shoulders, in typical stylized style.
