From Conference Sketch to Polished Composition

The sketch above was created during a session of general conference. I liked the look of the organist's face. For some reason organists strike me as having very little career options. Seems to me that at a very young age they decide that they could either be a butler or an organist. I've never seen an organist that didn't look like he could be a butler. Anyway, the final design weaves in many of the little details that I find fascinating with the organs on temple square. So many knobs, keys, pipes, and pedals. These men are amazing musical craftsman. I enjoy the polished look I get from redrawing portions of my subject as vector art in illustrator and finishing him up in photoshop.
