By request I made a process video! It’s not great but it gets the idea across. I keep my stuff really simple, and a lot of it is about planning ahead when drawing out, knowing things will be layered and that shapes need to stand out. It’s more of a practice thing, but it’s a fun puzzle.
I messed up here and there with this guy because, wow, recording yourself doing things is an instant way to give yourself anxiety up the wazoo.
A few things, I started with a thumbnail that was offscreen but it’s not much more than a few lines. I normally do my first sketch in a super light color pencil but the camera didn’t pick it up, hence my using an 8B or something. Nothin’ under 3B in these hands.
Also Earthling was in my lap for most of the beginning, it’s not optional around here.
