So, recently I did a little piece for Amelia’s Magazine's article covering the music of Alexander the Great. I love working for Amelia - not just because we share the same name but because she's just really great to work for. You can follow her on twitter at both and .

Anyway, I thought you all might like to see a little bit of my process for this piece.

I started with a line drawing on paper that I scanned in. I was introduced to blue pencil lead by my friend Pircan (aka Alex) and I really enjoy working in it. It’s easier to erase. 

After I scanned it, I made the lines black and cleaned up any sketchy lines that I didn’t want in there. Unfortunately I didn’t take any screen caps along the way as I colored it, but here’s one after I added some color.

And after trying out some brushes for the background.

I thought the splatter around the lights was a little bit too “computery”, if you will, and I wanted to retain a somewhat clean look without appearing too digital. So, here is what I went with for the final piece.

You can read the article here: http://www.ameliasmagazine.com/music/alexander-the-great-a-folk-operetta/2014/06/02/ - and I recommend that you do!

I’m so excited - I ordered a Wacom tablet! I’m looking forward to the convenience and speed of working digitally and mixing that with traditional techniques. And, of course, sharing that work with you!
