Art Drop Day

Any of my friends in the northern Utah area keep an eye out for this #ArtDropDay piece I plan on leaving somewhere tomorrow afternoon. Sorry you'll probably have to keep an eye on my Instagram or Twitter to get the clue immediately.

The latest illustration has a little different style. I've been pushing to let my line work stand out more. I had a feeling the fully rendered style I have been using had a really overworked feeling to it. I think the lines keep it more fresh and overall it is faster. Below you can see a lineup showing the steps to get there. First a rough with pencil and paper, then i move to digital making that really light and tracing over it while adding a rough digital drawing fleshing out much of the detail. Then a second pass again tracing the last but with clean finish lines, then the color work.

I really enjoy drawing in my toned paper sketchbook. Just to have the ability to go in 2 value directions with the pencil gives you a lot more interest.

Thanks very much to the kind comments from the stalwarts still sticking it out in the Blogger world. 

I wanted to work on getting my style a little less overworked. I also wanted to keep the line work. Here is the product, hopefully I can keep developing the look but I was really pleased with the final image, enough that I may further develop the character and story.
