By this stage, I have the idea and composition set. I then take my own pictures for reference. This way I can control the lighting, folding in clothing, poses, hand gestures and expressions. I have used my own face many times to create expressions for my subjects. After gathering all the reference I need, I do a final sketch (Fig.07 - 08). I love to draw, and I feel it is the foundation for the art that I create.

Often times I prefer sketching on a toned background rather than a white background. This helps me to lay down my line work and quickly establish lights and darks, giving my sketch a depth and life of its own in a short amount of time. A strong drawing and composition must come first.

Once the sketch is approved, I prepare the sketch for painting. I usually cover my entire sketch with a thin layer of raw umber, turning the sketch into something similar to that of a traditional under painting (Fig.09 - 10).

Jason, this is really impressive. I love every part of your painting and the approach you applied. Hope to digitally paint more than you do one day. Regards
