Above from left to right is the progression of the birth of a greeting card. It started with a simple request for a card to provide congratulations to someone who has their wedding schedule for New Year's Eve. So a rough sketch of an idea was made. Essentially this is just getting the visual in my head to the paper to see how it looks. I like the concept so I roughed up a sketch in non-photo blue to establish placement and scale. I did a couple of these before settling on this one. Then I ink over the rough with a dip pen and India ink. This gets scanned in, cleaned up and color and dialog elements were added in Photoshop to create the final image. You can buy this greeting card at One Guy Drawing Cards.
