The creative process continues

I'm plugging away on my images. I've been creating them directly in Photoshop. It's an evolving process. I'm trying to get the line quality and textures I want.

I think I've reached a happy medium in the process. I found doing my sketches by hand with pencil and ink gives me the line quality I want. I then scan the sketches into Photoshop and clean them up.

Once I get the black and white lines the way I want them, I add color, textures, and blends using Photoshop's capabilities. It's the best of both worlds!
