From Sketch To Final Illustration

The illustration on the top left started out as a thumbnail sketch done in Sketchbook Pro which I used for a pen and ink drawing for InkTober,

Because I had originally intended for it to be a colored piece I scanned the drawing and colored it in Sketchbook Pro.

This is the thumbnail sketch done in Sketchbook Pro.
Sketchbook Pro is a great program to use to sketch out ideas and of course to complete the illustration. I could have done the whole thing digitally but part of the fun of InkTober ( the month of October is used to make an ink drawing a day and post it on social media with the hashtag #InkTober- the brain child of Jake Parker) is to make these drawings with a brush, pen and ink.

There were four big artistic influences for this illustration. William Stout, James Gurney, Ricardo Delgado and Hokusai.
