Sock it to Me!

At last, something I've been working on for months! Or, practically, a year!

The following is a portrait of one of my favorite actresses, the pretty, wild, and funny Goldie Hawn, as she famously appeared in the TV comedy series, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In (NBC; 1968)! I'm extremely proud of this one.

This was first drawn with a blue sketching pencil on 11" x 14" Bristol paper, and then inked with Micron pens (a brush pen, a .05, and a .005). It was started in Spring of 2010, and was finally inked on late Friday night/Saturday Morning, September 3rd, 2010, while I was at Dragon*Con! I showed it to artists like Ted Naifeh, Josh "Shag" Agle, and Derek Yaniger while I was there, and I got praise for it. Now, I finally scanned it in Photoshop, and colored it using my Bamboo Fun tablet this morning on March 23rd, 2011.



The "Sock it to Me!" text was added in the Photoshop coloring process (first crudely drawn in black, then traced over in white).
