I am really curious about your process however, I noticed the sketches were made digitally, so I wanna ask, why did you decide to render the whole detailed thing digitally in grayscale before doing the entire thing once again on paper? Was it for the light-dark contrast purposes?
Yes. I sketch out thumbnails in my sketchbook first, then re-sketch it in Photoshop. I work out the lighting and any drawing/perspective issues. Then I print it out, trace it on to watercolor paper, do some color studies in watercolor to figure out the palette and then start on the finish.
I do most of my work digitally and feel most comfortable sketching in Photoshop. It is easier to make changes and experiment. It is weird going back and forth but it works for me.
I love this picture! It is almost exactly how I pictured her in my head. I am now thinking I should have asked first, but I used your drawing to help illustrate a blog post I just put up: dpaulangel.wordpress.com/2014/… I attribute the picture to you and include a link back to here, but I will certainly remove it if you wish. If not, I appreciate you letting me use, and either way I greatly enjoy your work
All the best,
this is horrifically wonderful! splendid job on capturing how terrible Umbridge's taste is!
~on a less enthusiastic note, well done. I love the angry cats on the desk xD
This is awesome!!! I love it!!!
(And GOD, even I can't stand that many cats, and I am, like, a HUGE cat person, so that is really saying something O_O
