A friend from work won my donated prize of a large digital illustration of their choice in a company raffle. She’s a big Beyonce fan, so wanted a colourful piece of her performing, printed on a canvas. The below images show the initial sketch, full-colour close-ups, detailed outline close up and then some background options, before the final artwork at the end.
I know, I know, I haven’t posted much in the past few months – but I’ve been busy, I swear!!
The 9-5 hasn’t left much room for personal work recently, but have started taking on freelance stuff again since the turn of the year.
But I PROMISE I’ll post more stuff over the coming months. Gonna set a target of doing at least one funky illustration per week as well, missing my drawing big style. So below is the first piece of the year, an A2 information poster done for the Lecht ski centre in the Cairngorm mountains, which should be on display there soon.
**Added the 2 outline images at bottom to give an idea of how much detail goes into each illustration/character**
A friend of mine asked me to create this digital illustration of his 5 favourite TV characters, done in a Usual Suspects line-up style. Incase you don’t recognise them, from l-r are Don draper (Mad Men), Walter White/Heisenberg (Breaking Bad), Tony Soprano (The Sopranos), Rust Cohle (True detective) and Dr Gregory House (House).
As well as drawing them in their signature clothing, I also added iconic items like Tony’s cigar, Walt Whitman’s ‘Leaves of Grass’ book, etc to the piece. Good fun working on this one!
Here’s the initial sketch layout, final piece and a few close-ups:
