A Bit of the Process...
A little bit of video for you. Here's me doing some quick, initial sketching. No music, cruddy quality, but hey... as the kids say, whatev's.
And three of me sketching it up a little tighter. I usually take a few passes at the sketches until I get it right.
The final sketch and inks:

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend.
