About the Drawing

I had so much fun drawing this, first in pencil, then in Pilot V5 Precise black ink pen on Strathmore 11″ by 14″ bristol board.

Here are my cell phone photos during my drawing progress:

Drawing completed! Because my scanner bed at home is too small for 11×14, I took a final photo in strong, even light. Then I did clean up in Photoshop.

The coloring page at top required one extra step: creating a vector version in Illustrator.
