Just sharing the portrait of my OC Cheverlina. I did this as a part of my 30-Day OC challenge. But I'm not going to explain it here.
Instead, I'm going to share you a glimpse of my process:
First, I did my sketch:
Then on my vector software, I traced it again.
Because my sketch is usually one shot, meaning I don't do erasures and continue until it's finished, (I was using a ballpen) I had to do all the corrections in the software, so I did some tweaking to improve her looks and proportions. But I still had to look at references and think hard on how to correct them, so it's not really an easy task.
On the illustration above, you can see the efforts I did to improve my sketch. lol.
So here's the final line art, and the colored version.
Have a great day!
