Portrait of Sondra & Dan

Black and white sketchDigitally colored version
Dan Eisenstat & Sondra Eby, a sketchy couple

I began this portrait in the same manner as the Kitten Karlyle illustration, and quickly found that it was the wrong style for these two. I made several more stylistic attempts, and was unhappy with all of them. We call that “the creative process”. I finally found the style I wanted by accidentally viewing all my sketches layered on top of each other. The rest was just a matter of cleanup.
