"For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth."

Gray Mouser at the Bazaar of the Bizarre.

One of my favourite scenes from Fritz Leiber’s Swords and Deviltry. I wanted to take my time with an image, and the intriguing, claustrophobic bazaar seemed like the ideal challenge.Β 

EDIT: Here’s a bigger version

This time around, I made sure to save some process images.Β 

I started with simple two inch thumbnails until I found a composition I liked. Then I pencilled up the image at 11x17. Once the pencils were scanned, I did a β€œlighting sketch” to figure out some of the volumes and light sources. From there I did a clean line drawing (my favourite stage). Finally, I just spent some time moving around the image, cleaning up the values and adding little details.Β
