Here are 3 steps of the process of painting the last of my 4 picture commission. This one is "Ultimate Fighters, Stare Down". The first picture is the rough sketch to get the pose etc. The Second picture is the black and white wash prelim to solidify the design. And the third is the almost finished figures and penciled in start of the background. You can see the various changes from one to the other. The pencil sketch was not perfect but the basic poses where right. The Second one made the guy on the right look to old. And in the third, you can see I have "trimmed" the back of the boy with the Mohawk and de-aged the blond boy a bit. This is 8 1/2 x 11 Acrylic on Canson board.
