This picture has been a learning experience.  It started out as a pencil lineart, scanned into the computer.  Then, I cleaned up the sketch in Photoshop and printed it out on regular printer paper.  I colored the picture using pen, highlighter, and colored pencils.  I am in the process, now, of mounting it onto a painted piece of wood and using polyurethane to create a clear coat over top of it.  Fun Fun Fun!

Learning a lot from the process...
