I had no idea when or should this be posted. Since the contest is officially over, now would be the time if any. I didn't have much of an idea on how to handle this, so I opted to not post a version with the required border and logo.
The audiobook I chose for the entry was Chimes of Midnight, a murder mystery crossed with a time loop. It has a great twist, and I really recommend it.
For the drawing itself, I think it's the largest one I ever did. Literally. It definitely made adding smaller details, like the watch chain, easier, but I'll likely need to wait to do frequent larger scale drawings as FireAlpaca almost crashed while saving it for the last time. This is likely my computer more than anything. I used warmer colors for the foreground shading and it becomes cooler as it goes on. (also why there's so many layers as it used a flat color then a clipping layer with a warm to cool gradient.)
Time Taken: More than 8 hours
Total Layers: Over 50
