From today until early March, the finished piece is hanging in a show called "Winter Soiree" at Cleveland Exotic Dance Studio, it should be pretty cool.
This is the finished piece, it was done with colored pencils, it's been a long time since I colored something using traditional media instead of a computer, so it was fun/a bit challenging to do it this way. I'm happy with the overall result...(for now)
This is a progress shot of the piece before colored it. It is graphite and white colored pencil on a grey toned paper. I redrew this from my initial sketch done with the live model. I really liked the drawing at this stage and was incredibly tempted to keep it like this, but as you see I sacked up and colored the damn thing.
and finally here is the original sketch drawn at Dr. Sketchy Cleveland, its a 20 minute study on rough brown toned paper done in blue ball point pen and whiteout (I'm fancy), this is was the last sketch of the night so I was a bit tired (and maybe a little intoxicated), but I still think it turned out okay, in fact there are more than a few aspects of this piece that were lost in the finished image, her facial expression and some subtleties in her pose being examples of that.
