Steps for coloring the MANIC OLD DOG illustration!

I recently created an editorial illustration about older dogs and their, sometimes, manic excitement when it comes to dinnertime. We all have to have something to look forward to. Apparently, old dogs look forward to do I :-) __Anyhow, I wanted to share a few of the different stages of creating the illustration, once the pencil sketch had been chosen. 1) The base b/w lineart. 2) The addition of flat colors. 3)  Laying in some shading 4) Changing the b/w lineart to color and adding a soft background.
The process takes a bit of time but I enjoy the feel of the final did the client :-)
