Sandra Carrington and her Beloved Dog

There were lots of good tips in this class - thanks Tom!

I began by doing some quick sketches of Sandra, using a mixture of reference images and imagination. Here are some samples from my sketchbook. You can see my final design start to take shape on the last couple of pages.

Once I'd decided upon a rough design and pose I made a larger version on A4 paper using the colored pencil technique to give me room to experiment with the details.

Next I traced this image using a light box and black pen to create a version with a neat inked line.

Finally I scanned the drawing which I tightened up and colored in Photoshop! Ta da!
