|Initial pencil sketch|
But because I've got no computer right now, I copied the original sketch on my copier, blowing it up by 150%. Then I traced the general outlines onto smooth Bristol board using a lightbox. From there, I was able to do some finer line work, mostly with a 6H pencil, and some darker lines with a my trusty HB mechanical pencil, and clean ups with my new favorite toy, a Tombow Mono Zero ultra fine eraser.
The whole process was really a lot of fun - working on a smooth surface with some tools I rarely use, all while sitting comfortably on my front porch on a beautiful summer day.
I gotta unplug more often!
