Here is my original sketch with a bit of color and shading added, prior to scanning.
For my digitally enhanced version I used a beautiful old paper background courtesy of Kim Klassen, and a vintage postcard to which I added text. The hat and face I continued painting using the Photoshop Elements brushes, and my trusty little mouse. This is when a pen tablet would come in really handy!
