Finished a couple pre-Labor Day blue lines sketches I had “laying around” on the iPad. Of course I took the time to design an insect warrior for August character design challenge. It’s always so much fun just seeing where the initial design ends up.
I have a couple more fashion reference illustrations I want to wrap up before moving onto the next project. I really get excited by the next drawing series even after all these posts.
It’s been a minute since my last post. The change of seasons brought on a sinus infection which changed over to cold/flu fun stuff. Prior to all of that I upgraded to the large iPad Pro/with Apple Pencil.
It’s taken a little while to get a decent workflow going forward. I still prefer to do quick thumbnails on paper prior. I am a huge fan of Procreate/ MediBang Paint and Autodesk SketchBook. For now Procreate is my default drawing app mainly because I created a thick illustration brush that imitates how I like to ink on paper. Although with Autodesk SketchBook the pencil lines feel 1:1 with real paper.
I still have some process steps to figure out. Below are my Procreate sketches that I don’t think are completely embarrassingly bad. It will be fun to look at these months/years down the road.
