THIS DRAWING IS not based on an actual reference - neither movie stills, nor somebody else's comics drawing and/or book illustration-concept art. I did it spontaneously, almost no erasing whatsoever. Just an A4 sheet of printer paper, a blue lead pencil and 2mm H lead inside Caran D'Ache leadholder.With scanning and Photoshop tweaking [darkening the lines to appear 'inky' and yet 'pencily' enough plus some filters for texture] it took me less than an hour to execute it from start to finish which means - to me at least - that I'm kinda becoming faster. It appears almost inspired by the great Wally Wood but truth is, I was prompted by motivation after seeing a Mitch Byrd dino sketch but resisted the temptation to 'homage' the drawing by swiping it.

AND CHRISTA ROZENKRANZ weaves her colouring magic again.
The drawing is mine, done in TWO layers [please see one of the previous blog entries with Layer Two shown without the foreground] because the first version had a completely different room & surrounding.
Drawn with 2mm lead, 3H hardness inside a Mars Staedtler leadholder on A5 sized Winsor & Newton cardstock [Grace in bondage on the table -- provided it's Grace, of course. Or is it her..? Hmmm... gotta see the comic first*].
The second layer/background was done on A4-sized printer paper with RED 2mm & F-lead in Caran D'Ache leadholders. Incomparable Christa did the composite by patching-up both layers into a single image.
The comic is (C)DARKBRAIN COMICS LLC, written by Wintress Odom, created & edited by a fearless publisher Andrew Zar, Esq.
* Wait a minute..! I'm drawing the damn thing! I should know, I reckon...
