Oaxacan Big Cat, Stage 1!

^ Rough sketch done with a Prismacolor Col-Erase.

^ Lightly inked with ballpoint pen. I like using ballpoints to outline the linework for my colored pencil illustrations; it shows up easily so that I can lay colors and patterns in, but it blends away beneath the layers.

^ The first color choices and patterns.

^ Almost there...

^ Colored the lines on the jaw.

^ Pulling back to show my work space, including a few pages of references in the back.

^ Stage 1 of the Oaxacan Big Cat is complete!

This is the second piece in my Oaxacan Animals series. I want to push my boundaries with these illustrations and produce truly distinctive work.
