For today's post I thought I'd show a couple steps from a Hawkgirl commission (based off the Justice League cartoon look).
(unfortunately I didn't take any progress shots of the actual painting, sorry!)
first up, digital sketch. drawn completely in photoshop.
next, I print out the sketch. Then I use a lightbox to trace the pencils off the printed piece. making adjustments here and there.
Then we just add some paint...acrylic in this case, and ta-da!
