I let myself fall off the 52 Week Illustration Challenge this year, quite simply I didn’t have the time for it. However I’ve decided that I will commit again in 2018. I plan to at least do a quick digital sketh each week – much like this one. I’d like to improve my digital illustrations and speed them up a bit.
The theme for the 52 Week Illustration Challenge this week is Australiana. I had fun doing this one and tried to get a few references in there. Like many of the Illustrations I’d really love to go back and colour this one using traditional watercolour or mixed media at some point.
The theme for this weeks 52 Week Illustration Challenge is ‘Feathered animals’.
My first entry is a pencil sketch coloured digitally. The second is a quick experiment with one of the beautiful Windsor Newton inks (and pen) which I got for Christmas, I haven’t had much time to sit down with them yet so it was quite fun and therapeutic to do.
This week I did a quick digital illustration for the 52 Week Illustration Challenge, the theme was “Scandinavian”. I’m very happy with my restricted colour palette as well as the general composition, hooray!
This was a last minute effort which I think has worked well for me, I am thinking of creating a slightly refined version of this image and making a print from it for my little ones bedroom.
