I wanted to put up some work-in-progress shots that would show a bit of what my process looks like from start to finish. This first is the finished pencil work that I transfer to bristol board after several sketches that establish composition and detail. The piece itself was a pretty important one for me as I knew it was going to be blown up into a large banner for shows. I wanted to make sure that it gave a decent summation of my artistic interests as well so I incorporated several of the subjects that I go back to repeatedly in my art, namely trees, eyes, bones and teeth. The full size drawing measures 19″x24″. Tomorrow I’ll post the image finished with traditional media.
