How I Begin An Illustration

Starting on the illustration for a Winter catalog cover for Kidstuff. Here is how it all begins with a super rough gesture drawing to work out the composition, work out perspectives and get a flow going. Its a restaurant scene with kids playing with a wind up toy product, so I want to make the product the hero of the image.  I'll post further developments later. Its always fun seeing how the finished paintings are transformed from something as simple and rough as this. Lemme know what you think....thanx!
