Black & White

For the past few days I have been flexing my artistic abilities by drawing small felt pen works in my A5 art diary.

These drawings are so quick and easy and also relaxing. Also good practise for me. I like just free styling without worrying about messing it up – though I do a little 😋🖊 mistakes with drawing is cheaper than mistakes with paintings 😆

It is great to practice like this. I hope you don’t mind, I am sure to do more of these drawings in the future.

It has been a long time since I showed my step by step progress on here besides it being a speed painting video. So here we are, I start with sketching and I love to leave the graphite marks on my works because it helps me paint and I think it creates a great affect especially for Walking Dead since the game has the dirty/messy detailing.

The second painting as you can see is a few layers of flat colours. Watercolours works with layers so I do is I put down a layer at a time to darken the colours or add any shading. The third photo shows my near completed painting, so here I went over the painting with pencils to add depth and details. I also went over some lines with a fine point pen to add the classic comic book style – true to the game.

And lastly, the finished painting. I will scan the painting with my A3 Brother MFC-J6920DW printer/scanner. It is a great product, I managed to save up for it early last year which is why I have been able to upload so often. This scanner does take away a lot of colour, so I have to tweak the colour/contrast settings in GIMP 2 as much as I can to bring back its colour which works really well. Then I resise it in two sizes, one for Redbubble to get quality prints and a low-res copy for social media like what you are looking at above.

And that is it, if you have any questions or if your process is different then I am happy to hear them. 🙂
