work in progress…. an illustration of a cute surfer

This cute surfer is new to the sport and loving it. His awesome mama commissioned this fun illustration to commemorate the birth of a new obsession! : )

The image above is a combo of a pencil sketch and some graphics tablet sketching once the original was scanned and opened in Photoshop. i also was able to give the client several color scheme options by adding color in layers in PS so it could be changed easily.

Since the proof has been approved, i’ll move onto the final, original artwork that will be inked on bristol board and colored with watercolor, marker and colored pencil.
