Here is a step by step breakdown of my process for one of my recent pieces. Sometimes I like to let the mood define the piece, there are other times when I start with a much tighter sketch, but I like this way of working and it has its own place in my work flow. If you I get a good response from this post I will make an effort to keep track of more works as they come to life, so let me know what you think!
A reposting of the final
And here is a sketch that I haven't posted on here yet! Thanks for stopping by!
