Just finished a commission but can't share it with you yet as it will be someone's Christmas present!! Will show it to you when I can 🙂
@sophieserafino 's new album 'The Journey' is out now, with cover artwork by Yours Truly! http://ow.ly/VDJE303xXgH
Inspired by the lushness that's blooming in the countryside at the moment, I have created a drawing called 'Flower Head'. Here is some sped up footage of me working on it. For this piece I used a hard lead pencil ('H') for drawing in the basic shapes, then began to fill in and add tone with softer pencils (2B and 4B). Next, I used black pen (a fine tipped liner and a fine tipped Bic) for definition and depth. Finally, I scanned the drawing into the computer to add colour.
