Unintentionally going back to my routes with this one, or at least what got me excited in the early days, had lots of fun colouring this and love the over all feel…. very cheerful!
While i’m working on the illustration from my previous videos i thought i’d share some of my colouring techniques, hopefully you will find it interesting!
So still a little bit of an experiment but i now have my own youtube channel, the plan is to update it as frequently as possible while trying to develop self described projects and in turn progress my illustrations. Video below and please subscribe to the channel.
Following on from my YouTube post yesterday, I’ve started inking today and will update my channel later tonight. For anyone interested in my YouTube channel please click Here
So, it’s been back to the usual absence of art work. I’ve been distracted with other artistic and work commitments which has blocked up any creative juices that I managed to get flowing. So for the first time in weeks I’ve managed to sit down and sketch this guy. Trying to plan out some projects for the year just to give me something to aim for.
It seems like I’m keeping my own promises and pushing on with my creative restart, I feel like I’ve built a very strong project for the year and I’m already feeling excited about what I’ll produce in that time.
The ability to sketch, doodle and polish my work while on the go has only been possible for me in recent months but I would fully attribute my successful concentration on access to apps such as adobe draw and adobe sketch. I am by nature a traditionalist with an interest in digitisation but this has stream lined my work flow. This latest illustration is based on a sketch from around 5 years ago, maybe more. I love pattern making… I love arts and crafts so I suppose these sketchs revolved around those ideas but are now certainly more focused on constructing a bold image.
I’ve spent some time looking back at sketches that never amounted to anything and discovered I have various characterisations of birds. I’ve picked my favourite few and started to rework them.
These illustrations will be more ambitious than my doodles and I hope that as I keep pushing on it becomes more and more visible in each piece.
Feeling good considering I’ve only been back at it for a couple of weeks.
