8 x 10 - colored pencil
Just a few minutes into color after sketching it out with white charcoal pencil. As you can see, I originally planned to have him in the grass and the sidewalk behind him, but changed my mind and reversed it. I know you're supposed to do the background first in colored pencil. Occasionally, I actually do that, but not too often. I 'm always too anxious to get to the fun part! Of course, then when you finally get to the background, you live in fear of messing things up! One day I'm going to get burned doing it this way, but so far so good!
Here he is mostly done and waiting for some grass and sidewalk.
This last shot was basically finished, just a few last tweaks and a signature to go. Gotta remember to take more pictures in process next time. I get too involved and forget!
