Nose to the Grindstone

Hey guys! I've got something here that I hope you'll enjoy. It's a new illustration as well as the process of making it in real time on my YouTube channel.

This is my first and second sketch in my Moleskine notebook, it's pretty wiggly and sketchy but I've become more interested in idea over form at this point. Always remember sketches are ideas, don't ever let that big brain of yours get in the way at first before you get your "feelings" down on paper.

This is my blue pencil trace over of the sketch after blowing it up in Photoshop and printing it larger.

The final drawing on Canson marker paper using a Blackwing-602 pencil. Really concerned here with getting some interesting background elements, looked at alot of reference for everything in the scene, thanks Google Images!

Here's the video! Hope it's insightful, let me know if you have any questions at the bottom of the video, and if you like what you see then please subscribe to my YouTube channel!
