Here are some work-in-progress shots of a recent piece. First up: the sketch done in blue pencil. It started out as a warm-up that I ended up liking enough to spend several days on.
I scanned it in and inked it digitally in Clip Studio.
I liked it well enough but I couldn’t resist the urge to do a full-scale pencil version. I love traditional pencil work.
After scanning the pencils in I decided to do a little digital color work to further define the layers and interest points. While I’m not sure it was necessary and I think I prefer the pencils alone, I’ll post the color one here as well.
