Tightening up the rough composition at this stage. I liked Livia's suggestion in my previous post that she accidentally chopped her finger off and cooked it in the pot...so I'll take artistic license and include that in the illustration. I'll also show a hint of the knife at the bottom with maybe a spot of red to reinforce the new gag. Originally she accidentally dropped a cigarette butt into the mix (they were very different times back then)...she never did live it down. So back to the art, I want to develop a vintage palette next to give it a nice nostalgic feel before I develop the piece further.
