Sorry it has taken me a shameful amount of time to post a blog, but I have been very busy with commissions - hurrah, which means I get behind on everything else! How I work is something I have been asked in the past many times and as I was recently interviewed on-line on that very subject I thought I would share an example with you today. Here’s is a link to that very on-line interview – a first for me - yikes!
So without further delay, here is a step by step guide to how I created an illustration using inks and watercolour paints.
How I work: The following shows how I created my illustration of a boy riding a dragon for last year’s iPad skin competition run by my Australian agent.
Step 1 – I place the sketch or enlarged thumbnail onto a lightbox. The watercolour paper is placed on top and using an acrylic-based ink I begin inking the drawing, without following the sketch too carefully.
