Sketch Of The Week: Psychic

It seems that I've been neglecting my internet presence as of late. Which is no good for a budding illustrator like myself. It's easy to become busy with projects and forget to make time for anything else. So, I've decided that I need to put a stop to that. I'm going to make more of a conscious effort to keep things up to date, starting with this blog.

In addition to creating more general blog posts on a regular basis I'm going to start this weekly feature called Sketch Of The Week. Once a week I will post a sketch and talk about it a bit. It should be fairly simple so I'll be able to keep up with it even if I'm really busy. Now on to this weeks sketch, The Psychic...
I drew this one about a year ago. I was going to turn it into a stock vector illustration for Istockphoto. The sketch sat in a drawer for months until I finally decided to work on it. The only problem was, by that time I wasn't as happy with the drawing as I originally was. There were minor flaws here and there that bugged me. You can see some of the darker lines wear I was trying to fix things in Photoshop. At one point I started to ink it in Adobe Illustrator but I think I just lost interest in it and couldn't bring myself to finish it. I think I would like to do a complete illustration of this but I'm going to start from scratch if I do.
