Here's some process imagery of my piece for the Stutz Holiday Show (see next post for exhibition info). It started with a sketch in my new book, contour line study. Then a small marker study on watercolor paper. Then the final piece on bristol board.
Bragging rights: On the marker study and the final, the heavy black brushwork was done first, with no pencil sketch, then the micron line-work and color added. It seems counter-intuitive, sketching with a brush, but that's what makes it so badass. haha.
Line-work first? Psshh... Don't worry, daddy's got you.
P.S.- yes, that's a bandaid on my thumb. I survived. :)
