This is a new little piece I'm working on.
Its cherry season, so I bought I nice bag of pretty red ones, and had to draw at least one.
I decided to try a little something different with the background. Rather than copy photo reference of something, I made up my own kind of 'loosey goosey' gingham check.
So here is the first pass, with a Prismacolor Carmine.
Then another layer, this time with a Polychromo Pink Carmine. Polychromos are a little harder, and hold a sharp point longer (at least for me), so I did a really light layer to fill in the gaps some.
And then I added a shadow.
So now, onto the cherry!
