Drawing Process for a Recent Commission

👦📋 WELL SISTERS, MAYBE SOMETIMES YOU WOULD PREFER SKETCH SOME BOYS.

Tea Time Book Reviews

Hello! Recently I did a commission for my friend of one of her characters. Usually I don’t take this many steps to draw a picture but when drawing my friends characters I want to put in a little more effort.

First thing I did was to ask for references and addition details, like what colours various things are and if there are any specifics they wanted included. my friend provided me with these images and some extra details which were super helpful!

I found some references online as well which I thought would be suitable. These are some pose and clothing references I liked. The character is a wind elemental so I thought I could draw him casting magic or wielding his sword. I liked the idea of him flying or floating so to get poses with that feel I got pictures that had people jumping, dancing or floating under…

Hi there how are you?

I love ginkgo leaves, speciality at this time of year. The leaves turn from green to yellow and lovely pale oranges.

I picked a few fallen leaves one day last week and brought them home to draw. It was just a sketch drawn with a fine liner. I scanned them into the computer for later and then coloured them with watercolour.

Later in the week I signed up for a class by Bonnie Christine. She is teaching a free 5 day class on pattern making in illustrator. I know the basics of pattern making but every time I take one of these classes I pick up a few hints, tips and techniques that make this epic program easier to understand.

Since I’d drawn the line work for the ginkgo earlier I decided to use them to make the pattern and I…

Concept

I was more inspired by a pose than anything for this painting. I wanted to imitate Renaissance marble sculptures in their gracefulness. Once I got the pose on paper, I then wanted to contrast the form with a natural setting and dappled light.

Process

First, I mapped out the body gesture in pencil and then added details of poison ivy on and around her. If I could change one thing about the sketch, I would have done more work to the feet, they ended up looking strange in the final painting. Fix anatomy mistakes in the sketching phase, you’ll not regret the extra time taken in the long run! Next, I inked the sketch with a Micron pen, thickening the line at points of convergence (under the chin, armpits, gathering of fabric) to add line weight and shadow. Then, the painting began! I started with a light wash of…

Showcase: Gustav Klimt

💢 WELL SISTERS, I AGREE THAT QUOTE.

irevuo

“All art is erotic.”

Gustav Klimt

• 14th of July 1862 – 6th of February 1918

• symbolist painter

• influences: Japanese, Chinese, Ancient Egyptian and Mycenaean.

• influenced: Egon Schiele.

Gustav Klimtwas born in Vienna, in 1862, the first born son of the Klimt couple. His father, Ernst Klimt, worked as an engraver and goldsmith, from whom he learned how to manipulate the famed metal.

Early in his artistic career, he was a successful painter of architectural decorations in a conventional manner, but for the rest of his life and even after, he was always thesubject of a controversy.
