After viewing the penciled drawing, the client asked that the nose be changed to not look so "piggish". Outlined using a brush and black india ink, the pencil is then removed with a soft eraser. I like to lay in a light layer of watercolor on most of the drawing to get rid of excess white paper and to establish my color scheme. In this case, the red was a given as that's the color of the product (and rubies). I wanted a familiar complementary scheme with a bit of gold to establish a comfortable feel.
