Eye of Beauty Border - line drawing
I've finished the line drawing for this border illustration. My daughter likes this one - a rare compliment.
If you are wondering how long it takes me to do these.... I drew the sketch in about four or five hours ( two long "Lord of the Rings" movies.) It took half that time to draw over it with a technical pen. (While watching "Water for Elephants.") So far this is about a three movie deal - just to finish the line drawing. I suppose I could go a bit faster if I didn't watch DVD's while working - but that would be so much more boring. This kind of work, while pleasurable, is tedious.
Here you can see the work half done:
