The ABZ's Continue With N Is For Newt In A Necktie and...

Marching through the the ABZ's has been so much fun and I'm getting close to the end only 5 more letters and I'll be done! 
N-troducing Letter N!
N is for Newt    8"x10"  Sharpie/Prismacolor Pencil  copyright 2011
Letter N is for Newt in a Necktie..bright with bold lines
You'd think that he's dressed to the Nines
A Nightingale in a Nest sings
A Sweet Melody of musical Notes ring?
Or could this be the reason for the net?
Off the stage birdie...You're not ready yet.
Twinkling stars in a Night sky 
Letter N shines...I'm sure the moon is close by!
Working from the beginning here's the first sketch on my messy desk!
Next up the sharpie details
To the finished piece and the POPS of color!

N is for Newt    Copyright 2011

(Do you spy anything a little off in this picture?)

Sadly there is no Sunday Sketches Link up this week as Sophia's father has passed away and she is dealing with the devastation of her loss.
I'm sure we have all experienced great loss at some time in our lives and know the pain that accompanies it. There are not many things harder than losing someone that you love.
Sending comforting thoughts, Prayers and Heartfelt Hugs!

Absolutely beautiful--heh, never thought I'd say that about a newt, let alone one who wears a necktie. But wow, also liked how you show us the steps. I was surprised you do the sharpie before the color. Doesn't the black ever bleed into your color?
