Sketch of the week - Reading Peter Pan

Okay - so I may not do this every week - but it's a good goal. This one took two evenings to create (I either draw or make trolls while we watch tv). I use a simple mechanical pencil (nothing fancy) and a pencil-shaped white eraser (it comes in a plastic dispenser thingie) on a nice drawing pad - paper that has a tooth to it. I sketch lightly, then go in with harder lines. I erase a lot. Then, once I have the drawing down, I start shading. I probably could have pushed this one even further.
  Now I've got it in Photoshop to color. I'm trying some new techniques, fiddling - fiddling. I'll show it to you when it's finished.

For some reason or another, I always seem to catch myself thinking "Peter Pan" right after Christmas. Perhaps an escape? Maybe it's a subconscious thought process in which I am merely trying to avoid January 1st: resolutions and taking a good, hard look at myself to see where I really need to be growing up around the edges.) Your picture hit the spot!

P.S. All the best to you in 2013!
