When other artists put step-by-step photos in their blogs, I just eat it up. I always find it exciting and inspiring to see how someone works. So here is my own version.
This illustration is from a skateboarding dog idea that just popped in my head out of nowhere. I basically rushed to my desk and drew it out directly on the watercolor paper without any thumbnails etc. Athough, I will go the thumbnail route with illustrations that involve a lot of details or contain subjects I find difficult to draw (bikes -argh!!).
