Amok Time BFF

This is a recently finished piece inspired equally by a very special moment in television history and a YouTube masterpiece.

The initial sketch

Preparing to transfer the drawing to cold press illustration board via lots of friggin' graphite on the back of the sketch.

Some of the tedious first steps. the cruddy white areas in the first picture are masked off areas made with artists tape and an X-acto knife. The dark area in the second picture is my shadow looming over the shot...

Workspace clutter! Includes work in progress, recently fixed netbook, drawing supplies, rough sketches, value studies, and etc. And I do mean ETC.

Finished ink drawing ready to be scanned and touched up in Photoshop.
