1. SKETCHING

The initial concept sketches I worked on for the client to review. The idea behind this piece was about dominance, ruler and royalty, that of an empress or queen but far superior than the latter. The concept was to show the character is better off without a throne.

After providing six sketch concepts, the client was happier with the sixth image.
I then began refining the rough draft.

Once the draft was cleared up enough – I began creating a line art draft. This would become the base for me to start filling it up.
