Finished up a commission for Thomas Vera. Ink and watercolor on 11x17 inch, 4-ply, 500 series Strathmore Bristol.

I had drawn Rocket before, but first time for Kung Fu Panda.


Image

Thomas Vera did not specify if he wanted portrait or landscape format so I did rough sketches for both. He went with landscape.

These were done on one 9x12 inch sketch paper.


Image

Full size drawn with .5mm HB mechanical pencils.


Image

Inked with Koh-i-Noor Art Pen and Platinum Carbon Black ink and erased with Sakura Sumo Grip eraser.


Image

He did not have a preference for background color, but mentioned blue so went with that.


Image


Image

Worked on Rocket first.


Image


Image

Did a really dark gray for KF Panda. It is much more subtle on the original art.


Image

Used a dilution of the same gray for the tones.


Image

Worked on Usagi, a few details like the flame coming out of Rocket's gun, and finished.

I am now wishing so hard a Kung-Fu Panda/Usagi crossover was a thing.
