Drummer Girl

Here is a sketch of a drummer girl.  I started with a reference pose, and added a few elements, namely the drumsticks, to make her unique.  Normally, I would take a sketch into Illustrator and make it vector art.  This time, I decided to paint it in Photoshop.  That was a bit of a challenge.  I am so used to working in Illustrator that I really had to change the way I add color.  With vector art, I can drop color and change it by simply selecting the fill.  When trying to paint, I have to consider blending and making it look smooth.  That will take a lot more practice on my part because a painterly style will change the tone of the sketch.  I normally don't do color sketches, which is probably why I had some challenges. I'll just have to post this sketch with love.
