Sketch Card sketches

Here are some ideas that I worked up, prior to doing a few sketch cards for a charity auction. After firming up my ideas in Photoshop, I transfer the images to the card and finish them up with ink, watercolor and colored pencil. These are characters that I created myself for this set, so I took a little extra time with the "pre-sketches."

This seems like a lot of work for a 2.5"x3.5" card. Maybe it is. However, I'm still enjoying the process, and having fun working with traditional media, for a change, instead of working purely digital. Also, it brings me closer to my personal goal of doing more traditional illustration and painting. So, I see the time commitment as an investment in me--professional development, if you will. I'm always trying to get better at what I do, so new challenges and experiences are welcome.
