Illustration Process Step 3: Final Sketch

After the initial thumbs and rough sketch I am confident the main graphic design will work. Now I will look for detail. I will shoot reference and clean up my rough sketch. I use the same method of transfer as my thumbs to my rough sketch as I do with my rough sketch to my final drawing. By printing out a very light copy as a template, I save time and energy, and I maintain the same quality feel I have in the rough sketch. In the final drawing it's about details, proportion, perspective, and trying to avoid tangents. After I am happy with the sketch, I will project the drawing onto my painting surface....and thus begins the painting. be continued. =)


  1. Looking pretty sweet, man. Can't wait to see the painting started!

  2. Thanks Jake! I'm supposed to have the final sent off by Monday, so hopefully I'll be able to post the progress over the weekend sometime.
