i'm holding on to your heart...

TITLE: i'm holding on to your heart
MEDIA: pencil + ink + photoshop

something i started yesterday and finished today :) thought it would be interesting the show the process of how i got there too...

started off with a pencil sketch..

then applied ink to the background...

then added touch-ups with pencil, and applied ink to the girl

...then i scanned it in, did some cleaning up and put in a background on the computer, and up top is the final product!

hope you like it :)


  1. now if only the whole thing was digital and you could watch it play back on a website. wouldnt that be an excellent idea? a better idea than say...ponoko
    (which can be typed using only one hand)
