Step By Step Progress
A sneak peek into my brain to see how I do what I do.
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Self Portrait 01
For this drawing I used a slightly different technique than "Girls Just Wanna" and "Milo".
This is a much more traditional style of drawing, where I actually drew the outline of the whole work, before starting on the tone etc.
Jill & Norman
Cast In Contrast
I then brought up the contrast in the photo to take away unnecessary detail for this style of drawing, and enhance the light tones.
Darren & Tenille
I had the idea to do this triptych for my brother Darren, and his new wife Tenille, so I contacted their wedding photographer and discussed my idea, and asked for his permission to use his photos as reference to draw from. Not only did he say yes, but he even emailed me high res versions of them!
This is the original reference photo of Tenille, courtesy of "Perceptions Photography". All I did to it was reverse the photo so Darren and Tenille would be facing each other in the final layout.
Using Photoshop, I then selected only the black lines i wanted to keep, made the rest of it transparent, then changed the colour of the black lines to red.
Started with the background first on this one because as I work left to right, I didn't want to add it in last and smudge her face by my hand leaning on it
The floor ground was done first as it would have been more difficult to add later in between branches and such
