sketch is pencil on 5" x 7" cardboard. color image is pencil, then digital.
My half of a picture trade. "Rabid" is a nickname. I just work here.
After drawing the pose in pencil onto cardboard, I fully intended to paint it with gouache for the finish. However, I drew this away from my office/studio where I paint, and so, due to insomnia, I just stayed up and finished it digitally instead. I think it would've come out very close to this anyway.
So it goes. The best part is that I still have the raw pencil sketch and could still go ahead and actually paint it later, using this as a guide.
