I don't have any finished pieces to post at the moment, but I always like getting a look at how other people work so I thought I'd throw up some screenshots of what I currently have in progress. There are one or two others but at this point they're just sketches set up on an artboard in Illustrator, which is sort of pointless to look at.
I want to replace the picture I have in the bio section of my website with an illustration, so this is the first try. Generally everything I post starts out like this, digitally "inked" over a sketch. It's kind of a mess, with all the extra and overlapping lines, but you can see where things are headed anyway.
And then this is what stuff looks like when it's about half finished. Lots of separate layers and little color swatches everywhere. All the base colors are laid in, all the black lines have been appropriately re-colored or removed (except for the buttons on her coat, now that I'm looking at it), and certain bits of the background - in this case the moon, clouds, smoke, and part of the house - are starting to get finished up. I save finishing the character(s) for last because that's where I have the most fun.
Obviously this one is a take on Little Red Riding Hood, but as I've stated before I'm way into yellow at the moment - it's become one of my favorite colors - so I went with that instead. Also, no hood. The placement of the trees is rough at the moment but overall I'm happy with how it's progressing.
