15th Post!

Thought I'd post some of the process for making this Cowgirl pinup.

Started with just a couple random sketches with a blue col-erase pencil on copy paper.
Scanned the sketches and drew up a cleaner version in photoshop.
Flipped the art and printed it out and traced onto 9x12 bristol paper with red (and blue) col-erase pencils.
Then added Copic Markers.
Decided to just render the skin tones (and hair) on this one. It's a look I've wanted to try for a while, but would usually get so wrapped up in the coloring that I'd be halfway finished before remembering :).


  1. Wow, the skin tone and hair approach is quite striking. Excellent pose too. Well done Joe!

    1. Sorry for taking so long to respond...didn't notice the comment. I used E00 and E01 for the base color. and E02 and E95 for shading.
