4th Lunch Bag of 5th Grade

Sara and the Leaky Locker is the theme for this year's series of lunch bag's.  I don't think that she has enough time to read a story at lunch, but I like the idea of the character having to deal with the added challenge of dealing a locker.   One that is out in the hall that houses all kinds of random gear and troubles.

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.
