Sketchy WIP stuff

Working on something for Illustration Friday....
Rough sketch:

More refined sketch:

Still much work to do!

Even though it is still very much summer over here, I am spending the day drinking warm herbal tea -- have a cavity that has started hurting with cold stuff. Bah!! Have I mentioned I am terrified of the dentist? I am going to have to drag myself over there sooner or later. Preferably sooner.
Second round of tomatoes have begun ripening, cucumbers have finally slowed down (good since we could no longer keep up!), and I used a great deal of the jalapeƱos to make jalapeƱo poppers. That was very tasty, and absolutely bursting with calories.
Back to drawing!

Dentists are better than owie-teeth... (You'll be happy to have that done and taken care of, I'm sure..)

I love this sketch. The slightly plaintive figure, the somewhat ominous crows, the fun stylized background - looking forward to this one!

Ooh nice. I like seeing the transition from the rough to refined sketch.

Carmen Keys said...

Thank you both! It is taking longer to paint than I anticipated...
