Before and After

I thought it would be fun to share some behind the scenes stuff for the Lost portraits that I've been making lately. On the left you can see the plain pencil work and on the right you can see how it looks once I've scanned the drawing in and gone about digitally painting it. I find that even if I'm planning on completing a picture digitally it still helps to start with some kind of a base on paper, whether the base image is done with pencils, watercolors, ink, or some other medium.

again, I am amazed by your skill. I was curious about how much was done on paper so it is very cool to see these steps.

What incredible work! I really am impressed. I am a HUGE LOST fan. Desmond is one of my favorite characters.

We have some similar likes in our profiles. I was doing a search through profiles for people who liked the movie EVER AFTER when I stumbled onto your site.
