Cleopatra: Set of Gesture Drawings
I liked the idea of the top gesture drawing, but it was immediately clear that the figure of Cleopatra had to be larger and more dominant than shown here. Once I'd settled on the composition and the idea was set in my mind, it didn't vary much. However, I did have to work within the confines of the layout of the final page, leaving room for the chapter title and the page text. I had to go with more of a horizontal retangle for the compositional space than what I'd originally envisioned.
