Here is the preliminary digital sketch for the previous post, before I tidied it up and shifted the pose a little based on some feedback from my friend/client who I was doing the drawing for. There is something loose and fluid that I like about this earlier, scribbly version though.
The finishing was all digital, done on my 15 inch Cintiq, but the process started out by doing a few pages of pencil thumbnails, from which my friend chose the design elements she liked best. I posted the pencil thumbnails earlier, here, here, here and here. So the final picture is a combination of bits and pieces from all of those.
I think I have an idea for how to use some of the other thumbnails too, for another project I have in mind. Which just goes to show that cheesecake doodles are never a waste of time.
