This project was a great excercise in drawing and revising my original piece.  I changed a few things including the pen shape in his pocket, the length of his coat, and his eyebrows.  Below you'll see my first part, I used tracing paper to create a clean outline of the character.


Part two involved making a thick black outline that would help with the scanning process.  I have a few nice pens for drawing but not enough different weights to achieve the effect that I wanted so I decided I'd scan it instead.  Then bring it into photoshop and use my tablet to draw with the weight I desired.


Here's a pic just for fun that shows each step in succession along with bits and pieces I wanted for the digital version.


And the final product ready for color when the next class comes out!
