I am definitely getting quicker. Although this illustration is a slight departure from my previous work, I’m surprised I finished the basic outline in just a few days. (This is where a more detailed sketch is very important.) My approach for completing the outline was to get everything in place and looking right. Although, I’m sure I will make some alterations as I continue to work with it. After it is approved, I am going to clean up the lines to prepare it for coloring. Since this style is different from my other illustrations, I am a little nervous about the color. I feel confident it will look good with the black outlines, but….you can’t help to wonder.
