Finally, the next to last piece of equipment in the series. After a short hiatus from the moleskine I decided it was time. I took some intermediate scans so you can see the progress. Didn't think to do that until I was a ways into it.

So this came about for two reasons really. First, I thought it would be a cool idea and something different. Unfortunately, I didn't think to do this until I was already started on some of the details. Second, it was late and I kept going in to comfort my daughter at regular intervals. This provided the perfect opportunity, as I was already stopped and distracted, to scan the drawing in its current state. In fact my daughter sat on my lap through portions of the drawing.

I love seeing the progression-- it makes your drawing so real. So tell the story-- how did you do it and did pausing to scan mess you up? Was it over days or minutes? Also, I drew a helicopter last night in honor of Memorial day that reminded me of your drawings. I'll post it this evening!
