Process Work/Sketch for BC-Rain. It'll be a colored ink wash ouo.

So people love seeing process work, and this is one I decided to share. This is an example of what I would do for a "thumbnail". It was my third one and started out as simple pencil sketch. Then I added some inks, some copic markers, some white ink, then some markers again.

This is only about 3x4inches, It's just smaller than an index card. You don't need to do a ton of process work to get an idea. It's not perfect, some of it is unclear, however that's not the point. This is FOR ME, in terms of language. It's for my mind (and my commissioner BC-Rain to be able to understand the basics. Now understand, I still spent about 2 hours on this if I remember (I made it a while back but forgot to post or scan it).

Process can be beautiful and with the final being a traditional piece, I feel far more secure in starting the final now that I took the time to invest in planning out my artwork. That's why sketching is NOT Worthless. It is worth your time and trouble. ouo I always have been a strong advocate for sketching and process work, so I want to be sure to be uploading and showing mine too!

Now I gotta go finish penciling the final one! :la:

Okay, just wow. I can tell there are some small things you're going to be wanting to change (like the placement of the willow leaves like you mentioned), but I love the idea you have going with this. The combination of over/underwater makes me happy like you won't believe, and the willow leaves leave an impression of wind that gives the picture so much motion. I'm so happy to see it coming along!!
I also believe that sketching/process work is very important, and I try to practice that too (if not on a bit of a larger scale, since it's digital). Whenever I forget to do the laying out of the entire picture, I'm usually stuck somehow with filling in parts halfway through and it's really annoying. It's much easier to plan it out before.

Yeah, the willow branches need to move.. XD They are in teh way of the cool stuff. I'll likely make them a bit thinner. I'll play around with a nicer sketch before I go to final.
