I apologize for asking this if this has been asked already, but I was wondering if you do any underlying drawing for these?

Nice balance on this one, Donnachada. Always like stopping in and seeing your work!

Particularly strong linework here, Donn.

Hey Mike, no,no, you didn't ask it before. No I don't do any underlying drawing for these. The pose is already done (in my head). All I have to do is outline it. That's the tricky part. When I start off a drawing, the line I just made suggests where the following lines are just about to be placed. Sometimes a line will be placed incorrectly, but that may suggest a different pose altogether. As you know, subtle changes may dramatically change the mood of the pose. Sometimes I follow the new direction in a pose if the line suggests it. Even when an incorrect line that suggests another pose, I can see the next few lines in my head before I commit to them and decide wheather to follow it or not. I see the lines before before they happen, then I place them either aggressively or subtly depending on the feeling.
ehhh...does that make sense?
Always like your visits too.

Cheers Elliot, always appreciate it.

Just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate your "process explanation" It's wonderful to learn how other artists think, plan, and execute their work!

No problem Mike. Looks like a couple of others found it helpful.

Ahh, Jenny. Too kind, too kind.
