Alright, here's my drawing of the venom girl contest from AAU's mini-drawing challenge. We had to take one of the photos from the venom photo-shoot that was kicked off of facebook. It features a female cosplayer that went all out to make a pretty sweet venom costume. Anyway, here's the steps
STEP 1: SKETCH
I usually just do these in a sketch book with a blue col-erase pencil, then mess it in photoshop to make it look like graphite. I'm left handed, so I need to use the waxy col-erase pencil or else I'll smear the drawing all over the page- plus, the blue col-erase is easy to get rid of in photoshop.
I inked this directly into the sketchbook using brushes, and some microns for the trickery line work and small details.
Textures, color, and some special effects and BAM, we're done.
