This is the final line art for my girl Chloe. It took me an agonizingly long time to get the hands to look right.I wanted them to be fairly expressive. Hands and faces carry so much weight in terms of the emotional expression of the work, so I wanted to make sure they were conveying energy and life. I wanted her to be lost in the music she's hearing - eyes closed and moving to the rhythm - her left arm swung back and her right hand imitating a guitar riff. Granted - I know that the left hand frets the notes on the guitar, but in this image (and in reality) things aren't always proper and correct. I am excited to work on the colors and BG in this image now. Whew... the tough part is over!

Most of the drawing is completed at this juncture. I am just about done with her arms and hands (they're still in pencil) and anticipate they'll be done in a matter of a half hour or so from the time of this post. Sorry for the yellow pic - took the image with my camera as opposed to scanning it. I was feeling lazy today.

Chloe is the main supporting character of my upcoming web-comic "Surreality." Chloe is a DJ and this image depicts her dancing away in some imaginary environment. This particular sketch is a scan from my sketchbook. I have since taken it to a printer and had an 11"x17" print out of it done for me. I have already used my light table and transferred it to the final piece of Bristol board and am tightening up the pencils and finishing off some details like the hands and accessories.
