This is the first vision and purest form of 'independent' for me. Everyone has a child within us and I imagine her to be like this. CareFree. Independent. Happy.
(Critiques are welcome. )
(I assume this is the thread for WIP of the July month contest, 'independent ' )
"This boy has always believed that he is a pirate. But everybody, including his family, laughs at him, when he says that. So, he made this treehouse in the nearby jungle tree, to his capability. And he keeps all his treasures he has collected in this trunk and is making a secret pirate plan.
This girl, he met in the jungle today, not only believed when he said he is a pirate but also looked at him with awe. She asked him plenty of questions. He has brought her to his secret treehouse and showing her his plan and treasures. First time, someone has visited his secret den. "
Hey, you can change the setting of your brushes in Procreate as well and make your own brush. Also there's a lasso tool there, select the part with freehand and then click the select button and with your fingers you can maximise or minimise the size or move the selection. I also use procreate and do it all the time while drawing.
Btw, the concept is good. You can give more effects to the drawing.
You have done an elaborate study of illustration by now. I have gone through your work and they are outstanding. Keep up the good work.
Pls let me know about the colleges in Europe, as I want Know the best schools for illustration in the world.
First of all, thanks for giving such a sincere and thoughtful reply. Thanks svs for creating such a platform where I could get good answers from illustrators.
Illustration is your passion, and you have a very noble purpose to contribute to the world through illustration. I really appreciate that. I never thought about illustration this way. Thanks to you.
You are very clear with your 'why' that I asked and I wish you the best in your endeavour. With so much clarity and passion and noble intent, I believe, you will surely reach great heights in life.
Thanks Eric, again. I really liked your perspective and will hink about it.
I hope I will get more perspectives from other like minded people.
This is a question to everyone in this forum. Joining this forum means you are interested in illustration either as your hobby or profession.
My question is , out of so many careers,why do one chooses illustration? Is it because you have the talent /gift to draw, you like storytelling, you like drawing, do you like to create a life through drawing, or you are not good at anything else, so?
What is it? What is that one thing, that one attractive thing, that drew you illustrators to stick to illustration whole life ? I really want to know your all' perspectives. As I am trying to find my own, "why/ that one thing"
To excel in any thing in life, you need to almost 100% hard work and dedication. Magic doesn't happen. So, what is that one thing that attracts you and convinces you to give your much precious time and focus in illustration.
The concept is very creative. I really liked it.
Maybe if you bring some texture into the art, mainly the wood of the treehouse, give it some texture, light and shadow play, 3D effect, to bring life to the picture overall. The colours now are very flat. otherwise the concept is really appealing.
I am a practising architect. Recently I have developed this interest for illustration. So I have joined svs learn and is highly inspired by its teaching videos and work of other artists.
Can anyone tell me some of the best schools for post graduation program in illustration (most of the programs I found are for animation. I want pure illustration, visual story telling) in the world?
Or does self practicing and online tutorials like this is suffice?
@Christine-Garner Hey Christine,
First of all, I went through your work and you are an amazing artist. Someone like you have liked my drawing and commented on it, means a lot. Thank you.
The comments I got from friends in social media were positive, so I was surprised and wanted feedback from some experts to know were they actually good.
Yes, I am trying to take illustration seriously and is focusing on the fundamentals now. i like to tell stories and improve on this skill to tell stories in a more fun way.
Thank you once again.
Hey, thanks for the reply. I recieved all positive coments from friedns and lots of appreciation. So, I was surprised.
I kept n drawing one picture after nother and trying to lead it somewhere, give a storyline to it. The girl I have named, 'MOKO' and everyone seems to love her.
i have just joined svslearn.
a few days back, i drew some cartoons and uploaded them in my social media. I got comments from my friends that I never expected (positive comments) But they are friends and they love me, so i didnt know how good actually these drawings are. So I have joined this forum because I feel here I will get an audience who knows more than me about illustration. I am uploading a few pics. I hope I get a genuine feedback from you experts and know where I stand in this wonderful form of art.
I am open to criticism, so you can say what you feel about my drawings. I just want an honest opinion. Also if anyone wants to suggest some editing, go ahead, I am eager to learn.
