Next step for me is a rough sketch from one of the thumbnails. I will scan my thumbnails, scale it up to 8.5 x 11, and print the one I like at a very low opacity. This acts as a guide for my rough sketch. I usually don't use reference at this point. I will add value and details. Pretty much just cleaning up the thumbnail. After I feel that it has enough clarity for the art director to tell what's going on I send it over. Once approved, I then move onto the tighter drawing. I will post this in a couple of days.
