The faceless stage…the part you don’t see

i get commissioned to do illustrations of people for special occasions a fair amount. Weddings and engagements seem to be the most popular.

In doing these projects, i spend the bulk of my time working on the faces, and i usually keep the face studies separate from the overall composition sketches.

Then, when faces are finalized, i plop them into the composition digitally using photoshop.

i thought it’d be fun to show you one of the completed composition inks…..sans faces. {above}

Creepy, right? i have tons of pages like this!

They’re less freaky when they’re finished : )
