I was inspired by the lyrics of a Billy Joel song (his version, not the Glee update) when thinking about Joanne Sharpe’s “Whismy Grid” lettering. This finished piece feels kind of ethereal to me, as though stars are lighting up the figure’s dress.
I was careful to sketch things out in soft pencil first, lest I make any errors. I did a LOT of erasing!
I could have stopped here, but I kept challenging myself to add more detail.
Derwent Inktense Pencils were used to shade the half circles. And my Signo white pen got a workout.
