Some teeny thumbnails for a poster design. The first is the basic layout, followed by a workup of the female character and a winged demon. I doodle first in non-photo blue drafting lead, then tighten things up in purple (which is just a wee bit darker). If the sketch is tiny or if the paper I'm tracing it onto is thick, I'll ink the sketch lightly with a Micron pen. This piece, done for a blur studio ride film pitch, was drawn on 4-ply bristol paper, which needs a dark underlay for light-box tracing.
