Here’s another work-in-progress and a behind-the-scenes look at my drawing process.
This was inspired by a writing exercise in the book One Year to a Writing Life. I had to choose an image to place in the central circle and let it guide as to what I filled the big circle with.
Usually I draw an outline in grey lead then go over it in black fineliner. On this picture I’ve also written down the colours I’ll use for some of it. I’ll rub out the grey lead then start colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils.
I don’t always do an outline. Sometimes I just go right in with the pencils with an idea of what I’m drawing and see what comes out.
