Thumbnails and ideas for the faces, poses and props (especially the little ‘cart of wares’).
Pencil sketch. For the composition, I imagined a large circle around the whole thing and you can see that lightly sketched in in the background.
Scanning the pencil sketch lets me fine tune the drawing without sacrificing the spontaneity of the pencil sketch.
Final artwork done with a dip pen, a Micron .005 for the wood grain, and an ink wash.
Honestly, I’m not sure what the grey thing near the back is. I think I was going for a sack of grain but it came out more like a hat or a loaf of bread, or a hat made out of bread.
