I was already working on a drawing from a stock photo I got on the net when the New Year Contest started. I had two unfinished art concepts in the idea stages, one in charcoal and the other an actual portion of the original stock image I was working on as a graphic. After the contest started I wanted to enter something and between the two I was already working on, the idea of doing this version in inks took shape in my mind. I wish I could better explain. I know some artists take pics of them selves produsing the art from beginning to finish, I guess that would be a good idea for next time I enter a contest, but for now this is what I have.
