Building on the previous year's techniques, the pencils went down as blue col-erase lines on the bag itself, then I inked over them, fleshing out the detail and then layering in the cross hatching for shades and shadows. The color is done with Copic markers and some sharpie. Finally the white on the character is mainly prismacolor pencil with a little gel pen to give it some punch. The white mist is added to help "pop" the character using smeared oil pastels.
