This project is really pushing me to try new techniques and colour combinations.
Today’s was supposed to be the last of this series, but I think I’ll just keep going and develop the theme, I’m having too much fun!
It all starts with a sketch of the Creature done with ultra fine point sharpies. I usually use two colours, mostly shades of the same colour.
I like to do a fast sketch with the lighter shade and then draw more accurately with the dark one.
Then I scan the drawing, clean and colour in photoshop.
It’s not a technique that I’ve been using too much until now, always preferring to work on vector illustrations or traditional drawing, with no help from photoshop. I think I’m converted now 🙂
