I wanted to show you the behind-the-scenes look of what goes into making my illustrations. I am hoping to make this into a regular post on my blog.
So this is the banner for Stylish Goose. It is also the first illustration I've ever created using my tablet and Corel Painter 11 software. I totally love Painter 11 now, but going digital was a bit of a learning curve for me. I was mostly using pens, markers and coloured pencils before.
In this first illustration, I did everything digitally, including the initial sketch. Then I was layering colours and details. It took me a long time. I am always refining the process, and now I found that sketching by hand and colouring digitally works best for me.
I really love drawing. :)
