Illustration update

 

Greetings,

My latest illustrations are more complex than my earlier work. I am using more colours and layers for each work as my knowledge of the Autodesk Sketchbook program increases.

Here we see an illustrated work that I completed for Jay @Dangerous Decorations on Instagram. He requested that the illustration not “look like a selfie”, so I used a source image that he provided, where he stood in an authoritative pose. The original photo did not feature blue reflective lenses, but I like to draw sunglasses in this way. It allows me to use airbrushing to add a reflective effect to the surface of each lens. I think it looks much nicer.

This next illustration was modeled after a photo I found on Pinterest. I was interested in drawing an interracial couple in an embrace, and when I found this photo of a Black-Cambodian couple, I knew I had to draw them. Their embrace is so romantic and heartfelt, because it is their wedding day, so there is a strong positive feeling of love that is emitted from the image.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out my latest illustration on Monday’s post.
