This is the line art base work for a portrait in progress, created with crow quill pen and ink. I'm now exploring whether and how to add any color or tone to it. I'm very happy to be on Dribbble; thanks very much to Jake Page for the invitiation!

Welcome to Dribbble! Great debut.
Go MD! You do some amazing work! Welcome to Dribbble!
Wonderful first shot!
Lovely strokes. Such personality :)
How are you experimenting with color - by hand or on the computer? It's a beautiful line drawing - if I were you I'd definitely scan it in and do your experimenting digitally beforehand. Welcome to Dribbble. :)
I'm trying color ideas digitally and also by hand with colored pencil and graphite. For those I've been working on printouts.
Thanks to all for your comments and welcomes!
Welcome to Dribbble! Nice Shot!
Love this sort of 'engraving' style.

I tried so many color options for this portrait! The problem with personal work is that there's no deadline. And since the subject is my daughter it really had to feel right. I think I got it with this version. For now I'm calling it finished! Colored in Photoshop.
