Alright, so you don't have to wait too long.
Process, process, process. I figured I'd show you some raw, uncensored thumbnails, right from the scanner. This is where most of these images originate, with a 4" x 2" prisma pencil on vellum sketch (or two, or three.) Some go somewhere, some don't. It's all about the composition and the idea at this stage. Sometimes I'll even scan them in and paint over top, just to get a head start.
