Art - How I Love the Process!

One of my all-time favorite things about art is seeing how it is created.  I am enthralled by the creative process and love to see how each artist gets from a blank paper or canvas to a finished masterpiece.  Every once in a while, I will jump on YouTube and just watch some people create, while I stare and drool.  Not only does it inspire and amaze me, but I also usually pick up some tricks of the trade!  :)

Below is a short little video of one of my more recent illustrations.  It is the cover of Amanda M. Thrasher's new book, The Ghost of Whispering Willow.  In the video, you will see how the illustration went from pencil, to charcoal, to chalk pastels. 

Have any of you made an art demo video?  I'd LOVE to see it!
