Drawing Board...

Recently I have been working on an image for a client, involving the meeting of two great men. One is an old, visionary Doctor and the other a young, wealthy Baron from France.

The pages here on my light table are a small sample from the 30 or so sheets of A4 paper I ended up with, and this doesn't include the background.

This is part of the final drawing that I went with and takes into account suggestions made by the client. This drawing was scanned into my laptop computer and then coloured digital art produced from it.

Here I am staggering blinky eyed into quite a nice Wednesday morning complete with blue skies and birds twittering on in the garden.
