WIP - The Empress - Part One

I was recently contacted by the Redbubble Tarot group to create an artwork for a tarot card. I chose to do the Empress. The Empress card represents abundance and fertility, Mother Nature, the Earth. She is often depicted with stars in her hair, pregnant, and with a fruitful abundance of nature at her feet (waterfalls, ripening wheat, a green multitude of plants). She is often depicted in a gown with pomegranates as a design pattern.

I created a prep sketch last night and earlier today I inked in the final lines. I’ll start the coloring work shortly. This measures about 12.5 × 19 inches.

I have the WIPs posted up on my facebook fan page , but I am posting them again here.
