Here is a visual time lapse of my process as I hand draw each design. I use the highest quality drawing implements for true color with remarkable durability.
I begin by consulting references and sketching the design. For this image it is very important to get the shape correct because it is so well known.
It is trial and error getting the correct shape.
After the shape is correct I often go over with black methodically, then erase leaving a clean outline with which to fill with color.
The finished product is a representation that is accurate and realistic.
