Working on an illustration for a possible book, and thought I'd change up how I apply the drawing.
Of course I start with a sketch from my sketchbook and scan it in.
Resize to what I need and up the levels in photoshop so that I can see my lines clearly.
Print it off, place under watercolor paper on light board.
The change is this, instead of using my graphite pencil...which I tend to be VERY neat with, I decided to use a colored pencil. I have come to love the texture of colored pencils so much, that I've even started to just sketch in them.
I don't know exactly how this will effect the painting process, or the paint in general, but hoping it gives a warm and soft undertone.
I guess we'll have to wait and see! :)
