I really like the feel of this one, a good sense of old New York.

The finished painting, I love doing these tight renderings, very satisfying.

Colour Comp

I always prefer to do a colour sketch before I start a painting, It lets the art director know in advance what to expect from the finished painting, it also helps me figure out the direction so I'm not second guessing myself all the way through.

Here is a tighter version of the first sketch, this was the idea they went with so I needed to make sure I knew what was going on for the final painting, tomorrow I'll post a quick color comp.

Color Sketch

These color sketches really help before starting a final painting. When you consider how many different ways one could take a black and white sketch, it's good to let the art director know what you are thinking.
