I did this piece a while ago, when I was teaching in-class. I would often ask students what they wanted to see and they would shout suggestions and I would paint them.
I did this small sketch in my [Moleskin.](https://amzn.to/2v6zCNR) I did it with a 0.5 inch pencil. Then I took a picture with my phone and started from there.
Then I would develop the lines.
And clean them up some more.
Apply value. This was a photocopy onto gray paper. Some students were afraid of doing digital work.
Push the contrast even more. I think I used ArtRage for this.
Not wild about that method of adding color. Trying something different here below.
This one I liked better.
I did this so long ago, that I don’t completely remember my process. I’m still playing with my process so I’m still tweaking it based on speed and how I like to work.
Thanks for your support.
