Drawing away until the wee hours always feels good. So does combining two animals into one. In this case, a wood bison and a bull. With its own special rider.
I'm working on the third version of the preparatory drawing, and it's really coming along.
I find that the first drawing I do captures something of the feeling in my head, the dreamy part, but it usually needs more substance. The second drawing usually has more things in the right place, but often looks either a little too technical, cartoon-y, or has lost a bit of the energy of the first. Then the third somehow pulls it all together, combining the dream and the real into something new.
