STAGE 1 — PENCIL
After choosing the right image, I start drawing over it using vellum paper, my trusty light table and a sharp pencil.
STAGE 2 — PEN
Once I've got my pencil drawing, I once again draw over it, but this time around I use a sketching pen.
STAGE 3 — WACOM PEN
Finally, after scanning and uploading this last drawing, vectorizing it with Illustrator, I use my wacom tablet and pen to colorize it.
