Little background on this one, my oldest son gets his licences next week and that is him in the side mirror. Teen drivers are the worst LOL.
Continue of step 5 of the local color and tweaked suggestion from @Jason-Bowen:
Step 6 - color the ink darker then the rest of the local color:
Step 7 - add texture paper on top and set it to multiple.
Onto the shadows and highlights, one of my favorite steps.
Feeling kind of ehhhhh about my illustrations lately. Pencil sketches are fun for me and relaxing most of the time. Illustration is hard. Trying to keep my chin up but getting really discouraged. I know it’s that artist brain. We probably all feel it. Anyway, here’s a recent sketch.
Thanks everyone! B seems to be the clear winner. I suppose the white outline worked well with my inktobers because it was just the character and not a full illustration. @TessaW and @Adrian-K here is a version with just the splatters.
Hi all! Sorry I'm in and out so much but the full-time job + misc freelance can really swallow me whole sometimes. Here's a quick illustration I did for the new studio though. This one has some pretty personal metaphors buried in it which I don't usually tend toward in stuff I show to the public, but I'm multi-tasking these days.
I'm stoked to see what SVS does with that space!
Thanks everyone for all the help. Unfortunately I couldn’t pull it off. I just am not satisfied with the piece, and don’t want to present it this weekend. It is my fault for procrastinating. However, I will still be able to participate as an illustrator and have my portfolio with me. Thanks again.
Day 3/31 of #inktober them Grim Endings. This coloring page is inspired by the story of the Ladybug and the Fly. "A lady bird and the fly once lived and kept house together, and they brewed their beer in an eggshell. One day the lady bird fell in and was burnt." The fly starts to scream, which causes the door to creak, which causes the broom to sweep, which causes the stream to run, which causes the fire to burn, which causes the tree to rustle and lose its leaves, which causes the maiden to break her pitcher, which causes the well to overflow… And drown them all.
I thought I would have a little fun and make it into a promo piece. Success takes dedication and hard work. Like it is with staying fit and healthy, there really are no shortcuts. There are failures and road blocks along the way. But like the hare that lost the race to the tortoise, he isn't giving up to failure. He learns from it and gets right back at it! Next time, he's gonna win.
