Here is the sketch scanned in and enlarged. This is actually two really rough sketches superimposed. This is really just a rough blocking sketch for layout purposes. I fleshed out the details in Photoshop. I had some other sketches of character studies for this croc which I did not scan. So even though this sketch is pretty obtuse, I have laid a lot of the ground work for the sketch, between other initial sketches and my thoughts and ideas for what was going to be happening in the piece.
Here is the finished phase of the sketch. As you can see, I created just about all of the details in Photoshop.I had fun researching this piece and I liked how the composition came out. It's busy but not so distracting that the story is lost.
Tomorrow, the conclusion!
