WALKING WITH A PANTHER!!
I was foolin' around one day on the net and I saw this cool picture of Erykah Badu with this gigantic afro. I got inspired to draw a female character with a super-sized 'fro!! Everything about this picture fell into place really well from the thumbnail drawing to the finished piece. I did this one and the fighting spirit drawings at the same time. I'm starting to do this "assembly line" drawing process where I work on at least three pieces at the same time. What I've noticed is that the same amount of raw energy is passed on the each piece, therefore, I keep the same amount of energy flowing without stopping and completing one piece at a time. I'm starting to like this way of working and I really hope that it keeps evolving as time goes on!! I also paid homage to the L.L Cool J album title of the same name for all you Hip Hop heads out there!! Peace!!
