Illustration steps....


My illustration shows the passage of time. My previous post was the birth of the concept below. Working backwards, you can see how I fill out the picture. I'm a bugger, usually going straight for the most prominent thing (the tree), but I made sure I created a draft piece first (bottom pic) to understand where I wanted light and shade. Because this piece is for me, I've made changes as the image grows, and I still am. The way I work can be changeable, but that's only when I'm working on my own picture. But for others, I like to get the idea pretty much finalised, and if there are changes, they shouldn't be too big. I like using pencil, but this piece is A2, so I feel like throwing all my pencils out of the window in frustration! I'll post the finished piece soon :)
