I did a lot of sketching to establish how the two main characters looked, amassed a plethora of accurate reference (thank you, Library of Congress!), and took model reference shots for the poses. Time to draw and ink away!
I had a lot of fun creating these illustrations. I've been establishing this one-color interior illustration style which I think works well. It reminds me a bit of screenprints or silkscreens with the texture. Goal of 2014: learn how to silkscreen and print my heart out!
