I wanted to drop in an image that I did recently to show the process I go through with sketches to finished piece (although I still have a little bit I think I want to work on for this one).
I was inspired by one of my favorite characters. She is a natural Rock Star (and my should you hear her voice!). But I think the picture is worth a thousand words.
ENDLESS inspiration! Started with Air Guitar and went to blue lines...adjusting the image
Solidifying the lines - figuring it out on paper then moving to the computer to tweak....
Finally get to a point where I want to stop....there's always more to make it come alive but this is a B&W image I did. Tried to keep the energy of the inspiring model while adding a little bit to it....I think she's a rocker with a southern flare.
