Process Ichabod


Here we have a not-so-fabulous photograph of the acrylic painting at the point I decided to go digital. It's pretty rough, still. I also did a quick color study on the computer before starting to paint, but I won't offend your aesthetic sensibilities by including that here.

This is the drawing transferred onto illustration board with graphite paper. Now I get to bust out the acrylics, laying down a light wash to start things off.

This is the final drawing, where I tried to work out all the design problems.

And here is one of the rough idea sketches-how the whole thing got started.
