This is the second illustration for my Howl's Moving Castle series. This scene illustrates the first two chapters where Sophie becomes so wrapped up in her job that she begins to talk to hats as company. There are also rumors that the wizard Howl is on the prowl sucking the souls out of pretty women and eating their hearts.
Above I have some thumbnails of the different options I created for the composition. Below I have some color options that I played around with as well. As you can see, I had a general idea of the color scheme I wanted, but wasn't completely sure about what colors would go along with it the best.
