Mea culpa, also some new work
It has been brought to my attention that my posting has been lacking as of late ("lacking" as in "nonexistent"). I'll admit I was already well aware of this fact. And though I have many excuses, some even valid, I'd rather just shut up and post.
These first images are the preliminary sketches for a portrait commissioned by the subject's grandmother. This project is a great example of how important it is to have a second set of eyes for feedback. I had worked on these drawings for so long that I could no longer see what needed to be done. Even without any illustration experience, the client was able to see what needed to be altered in order to make the end result satisfactory for us both.
I'll post the preliminary sketches first.
