In an effort to create better transparency between artist and client, comic book illustrator Drew Edward Johnson will post commissioned artwork in progress, along with his current commission list. This way the client can check in at any point to see where they're at on Drew's commission list, and get a first hand look as each individual commission is created. Postings will occur several times during Drew's work day, so check back often to get a look over the artist's shoulder.

Shin Commission Part 1
Here's first work on the new commission, an original character of the client's called Shin, an elf warrior. This is a photo off the iphone, so it's not a great scan, but it'll give you an idea of where this piece is at. I'm drawing this one on comic board from DC Digital, so that's why there's a gutter in the middle of the paper. It's good paper---I enjoyed working on it when I was drawing Masters of The Universe #8. It's smooth board and it takes the pencil well.
