Drawing my wife again...

 Here's a cartoony caricature drawing I did of my wife Friday night while she was out at the movies. For the first step, I drew the original piece with a crappy ball point pen [I love drawing with crappy ball point pens...] on a regular sheet of copy paper. 
Next, I put it on my lightbox and inked it onto a sheet of 110 lb Premium Cardstock paper. I used a COPIC Sketch Marker (E79 Cashew). So, yeah... the piece is really dark brown instead of black, but my scanning skills are poop. Since I draw comics, I usually only need black linework, so I approached this piece the same way I do comics. After scanning, I adjust the Levels (control L) and Brightness/Contrast (alt + I > A > C) to get the cleanest and blackest black I can. It sounds complicated, but the whole process took less than 30 minutes.
Anyways, I hope you like it. If you have any feedback or questions, please get at me via comment or social network. If you're real shy, just email me.
peace,
