Saptan Stories – Week 3 WIP Process
Thought I’d show the step by step working process for last weeks illustration for #SaptanStories:
I usually start with small thumbnails or a rough sketch.
Hands usually need a reference and I used my own here.
Once I’m happy with the sketch, it gets inked up and then at last on to the colouring. (The fun part)
I used felt pens for this project as they are fast, I can use them on the go (my lunch break) and they also restricted the colour palette. (I’m very indecisive!)
The dark colours I laid over the light and blended the edges with a lighter colour or a blender as these felt pens are great for that.
And there we are! No photoshop just scan, crop and upload.
