Alright, how do you keep the same tranfer. Do you use transfer paper or how do you keep the same layout?

Very interested,

Well Mac, sometimes I use transfer paper, sometimes I use black and white photocopies on drawing paper and sometimes I just redraw the layout. In this case, it looks like I transfered.

Absolutely amazing stuff! Well done!

When you transfered the drawing, did you do it with graphite paper onto bristol board. What is the difference between cold press and hot press? And why is one better than the other for illustration?

Thanks Changsha.
Mac, I used graphite paper or I just smeared a lot of 6b on the back of the drawing... Can't remember. I use pretty much any support that is handy when I paint although I favor animation paper or good layout pads for drawing. So far as I can tell, 'cold press' is generally more absorbant and therefore better suited to liquid mediums.
