My Official Art Process...

Because absolutely no one demanded it, in this post, I am giving you a sneak peek into my artistic process, or lack thereof.

Inspiration hits me from just about anywhere, but typically it comes to me while I am no where near a pencil or piece of paper.

Thankfully for modern technology, I can just whip out my cell and take a picture of whatever tickles my imagination. And then sketch my idea later.

However for this piece, I did not have that luxury. My wife and I were traveling in a car when I spotted a really cool statue in front a public library.

So when I finally got home, I jumped on the net and luckily found a picture of it. I quickly sketched out my idea.

Then I gathered some reference images for the finer details of the illustration.

I also decided to add some other details to make the concept more mine, which required more reference material.

And how many hours later, I came up with this...

Hope you all enjoyed that. I plan on doing more with the same theme so stay tuned ya'll. Thanks for reading!
