Hela - Rough

One of the commissions I am working on is Hela on Canson Paper. In doing a Canson piece, I have to have the drawing down as tight as possible when I transfer to the Canson Paper in order to avoid excessive erasing. The paper just cannot handle it. This is especially important when I am drawing a character like Hela with tons, and tons of costume detail. Oy!

I did one little sketch on a post-it, scanned it and digitally roughed out the actual figure. Printed it out on tabloid size paper at 30% black. Then I start drawing the costume right on that. And I repositioned her arm as well. It's almost done for this stage. Tomorrow I will transfer and finish it.
