My Process

All of my drawings are hand created, stroke by stroke using a stylus pen and graphics tablet. No automatic software or filters are used to create my drawings.

My techniques are similar to my traditional pastel pencil drawings. I have discovered tricks and techniques that I call my "in house tools", of which I don't share with anyone since these techniques help create the unique look of my drawings. The brushes I use I have custom made personally for my work.

At least 50% of the reference photos I receive from client's are not ideal and are of low quality. Because my drawings are hand created, I am able to work from lower quality photos and add in, by hand, all those missing details.
