as usual, i started with loose pencils - minor photo reference for the dancing pose and for specific shape of the euphonium.
and then tracing paper over the pencils for the color study, using markers.
...then to the lightbox and onto the final image. i glued it into a pre-cut black matte i bought at pearl, and i put a piece of acetate over the artwork to protect it. i think it looked pretty good, and i hope he digs it.
