Some progress...

So here is a little character from the book I am doing in the USA.
With all my characters i start off with sketchy sketches and then use my lightbox to outline them in neat pencil line.
This is important in this case as for this book I am using the pencil line as a layer in the illos. So i go from this... this, where i use the lightbox again to paint over the line work so it fits once overlayed, and using a mixture of acrylics and pastel pencils, I work into the image and build it up... this! Paint finished and scanned in, i can manipulate parts and colours in photoshop, and add the pencil line overlay! Whoopah! :)
