I have a full 1+ hour demo of me creating this drawing on SVSlearn.com. In this demo I discuss the primary elements of a good illustration, teaching you: - How to come up with a concept
- How to compose an image
- How design characters
- How to render in ink and watercolor
This demo is included with the $15 monthly subscription or you can buy it a la carte. Link in ma profile.
If you end up watching it, let me know what you think!
Feeling grateful this Memorial Day for people who died so I could live a peaceful life drawing for a living.
100 years ago last month the U.S. entered the Great War in Europe. Even though WWI was a CENTURY ago, there's only one degree of separation between me and a couple of WWI vets. I was talking to my 90 year old neighbor yesterday and found out that her father was a medic in the war. He was hit by shrapnel from a bomb and was badly injured, but survived the war. My father would tell me stories of his uncle who was in the infantry and suffered from horrible lung damage because of gas warfare.
So today I drew this in honor of those who died in WWI and the people who knew them.
