When it comes to the colouring in bit for my illustrations I often use predominantly digital techniques. For ages I've wanted to revert to using more traditional media such as paint, ink etc, or at least have this play a bigger part in the image, but I'm sort of out of practice, so i'm setting myself a weekly task which will hopefully help me brush up (no pun intended) my inking abilities.
This little project will also be a regular blog
a week i'll create a 5 x 5ins 'bust style' original illustration, of a
different animal character and post the result here. My even start taking requests if I can keep this up for long enough.
here is the first of many (I hope) complete with his own bio:
Favourite colour: Red
Favourite food: Red Mangrove leaves
Favourite quote: The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, instead of what you don't have. Woody Allen
Once I get into the swing of things a bit more I'll start a weekly giveaway of the mug shot original or print.
