Working from sketch to final line art.

Been busy this summer working on a SCBWI-IL Writer's Conference, painting backgrounds, designing notebook pages, and creating a "camp craft" for adults. (I'll try to post some pictures next month. I want to keep things a secret until the conference is over.)

In the meantime, thought I'd share some rough sketch to line art work I've been doing. I hope to finish the line art by adding color in Photoshop.

Here are some sketches from this summer. I'm working through a "PIG" theme. At this stage I'm not positive what the background will be, or if I will combine the single figures with others. Working loosely in the sketching stage I try to capture the pose and emotion of the image, when I start the line art, I have to be more sure of what I plan to emphasize.

Once the line art is established I import it into photoshop and fill in with color, texture and shading. I was disappointed that my line work didn't remain as fluid in the digital version. I need to play around with this and get it resolved.
