Stages to completing a page

Stage 4 Finished drawing
I added some more elements like the floor and pendant lamps. So i think it's done! now on to the next page . . .

Stage 3
Shadow and light
Image is transfered and I'm beginning to block in shadow and light. Sometimes i get carried away and start some detail, but really i try to leave that sort of thing last.

Stage 2
Getting the characters drawn and placed within the illustration
I want all the animals to feel like they are interacting with one another, but i also don't want to make the room too jumbled and confusing.

Stage 1 Getting the reference
This can take me longer then the actual drawing part.
