52 Week Illo Challenge – Purple

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.

52′ Illustrations – Week 3 Australiana

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.

52′ Illustrations – Week 2 Feathered animals

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.

Picture of colour palette used for mentioned illustration

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.
