Custom blog header



I spent most of yesterday evening working on a blog design for my latest client. (Ok, it's my sister, but anyway . . . ) We brainstormed ideas and finally came up with one we liked.
I started with a quick, small pencil sketch, then transferred it to the computer with my wacom tablet. The finished picture was created in Corel Painter. (I had fun making the repeating wallpaper/background design, too!)
It's amazing how easy it is to draw quickly when the picture is already clear in your head. Although . . . I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror, and realized that this character didn't come wholly from my imagination . . .
