Here's another comparision of my reference to the final product. As you can see, I change some stuff to match the feel of the piece. So for instance, if someone is smiling in the photo, but I want them to be serious, then I change it. So, I don't copy the reference line for line. I just try and use it as a jumping off point and then try and make it my own. Hope this helps other artists to show my strengths and weaknesses and how I work. Enjoy.

Just got the proof yesterday for "If I could be anything" PINK EDITION. Besides not having a glossy cover, everything looks great. The colors are more vibrant and true to my original files than the BLUE EDITION. Once I get these printed, they will go up on my Etsy Store.
The best part: These are going to cost less than the BLUE EDITION. Better quality and CHEAPER. Can't beat that, right?
Special thanks to Apex Book Manufacturing for printing this. Awesome printing for a good price, not to mention super friendly service.

The above image is pencil sketches from my sketchbook and the image below is one of those sketches colored in Photoshop. I don't know if I really like it very much. I like drawing with pencil more than doing it on my WACOM, and I like coloring on the computer, but they don't seem to mesh well. I need to figure something out.

Nerdy girls sure are fun to draw. This is a character I've been kicking around that I like. Don't really know if I'm going to do something with her or not. If I can come up with a good story, then I'll probably whip something out. If not, it was a fun exercise. In either case, enjoy.
