TaTa Gala Final Image: "Firemane"

This is my final painting for the 2011 TaTa Gala exhibition. All proceeds from the gala go to benefit various breast cancer charities. October is breast cancer awareness month and I was very glad to do my part for the cause...

Save the tatas!

TaTa Gala - Inks

This is the inked version of my pervious post. The original work is done in Copic sepia pens so that when I paint it the line is less distracting than the dark black mark of a traditional ink line. I've done this in the past and the results are fantastic. When I scan these sepia lines I opt to make them as black as I can so if I decide to digitally paint this one as well, I have a crisp black line to work from.

Next step is the watercolor flats. I'll try to take photos of the painting process as I go along.

TaTa Gala - Pencil Stage

This is going to become my entry for the Ta Ta Gala exhibition. The Ta Ta Gala is an artistic event geared at raising money for breast cancer research and support.

This stage is my pencil work on Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper. Next step is to ink it using my Copic sepia pens.
