I sent this, and got approved. And here are some photos of different drawing stages.
I first print the rough sketch in actual size for final in tile (I use indesign!) and trace it on watercolor paper using light box.

I think you can still check the magazine here.
Thank you so much and I will try to post something more soon!!
(Special Thanks to Joel!)
