Latest sketch...



Took some time today to work on this sketch. I have been working on it on and off for a couple of weeks. It is part Photoshop and part pencil. The boy proved to be the most difficult part, getting him to look right and mesh with the illustration as a whole. One part that helped was changing the dragons eye. Below is the original eye...


And this is the new eye.


Not only did it make the dragon more "friendly" looking, he and the boy fit together now.

Anyway, I hope to color this (the little boy need a bit more work), and use it as my header, and perhaps my first portfolio piece.

Awwww, what a sweet dragon! I love this Tom! I agree his eye does look much friendlier the way you changed it. Can't wait to see it colorized!

Nice sketch, Tom! Isn't it amazing how changing one little thing changes the whole feel of the piece? Getting just the right expression can be so challenging!

Thank, Linda, Diana, and Jennifer!

Yes, Jen, this was a challenge, but I learned a lot as well! Looking forward to coloring it!
