Some analog work while I wait for my computer to be fixed. Started with a rough sketch in my sketchbook, which has a toothy grain. I normally use pretty dark pencils, so things end up rough and dirty. But normally I’d scan it then clean up in Photoshop.

But because I’ve got no computer right now, I copied the original sketch on my copier, blowing it up by 150%. Then I traced the general outlines onto smooth Bristol board using a lightbox. From there, I was able to do some finer line work, mostly with a 6H pencil, and some darker lines with a my trusty HB mechanical pencil, and clean ups with my new favorite toy, a Tombow Mono Zero ultra fine eraser.
