Time for a sketchdump
Anonymous asked: Hi! Thanks for redrawing the centaur. I'm not at that level yet (I hope to draw like that after much practice), you're pretty awesome. That was one of the coolest artistic renditions of a centaur I've seen (typically they're done in the Classical style in the Greek and Roman exhibits at art museums) it was fascinating to see a modern twist done so well. You'd be great at drawing Great Gatsby stuff, the new movie's scheduled to release in theaters soon. Thanks again for your generosity!
You’re welcome! For some reason I’m really interested in modern takes on figures from mythology and folklore. And I’ve been looking forward to seeing the new Great Gatsby movie, the trailers and the soundtrack are gorgeous. Thank you so much for your kind words; it really is just about practice. All the best!
Anonymous asked: Hi! That was a pretty cool illustration of a centaur. Do you think you could make another cool illustration like that (but different) or explain how you illustrated it?
Hi! Thanks! For that I used acrylic ink on watercolour paper. I sketch a basic outline and then lay on wash after wash of black ink, blocking in shapes and shadows first and getting progressively darker and more detailed as I go. I wait for one wash to dry before layering on another; anyway acrylic ink dries so fast you hardly have to wait at all.
This is just a really quick little reproduction I did just now and photographed with my phone, so sorry about the lighting. Once I decide I shouldn’t touch it any more I scan it in, clean it up, and do a bit of editing on photoshop. No background because I suck at backgrounds
I hope this answers your question. If not please let me know!
reality-and-art asked: Everything is so amazing. I mean, why don't you have like 1,000,000 notes on each illustration?
Thank you so much! Haha any love I receive already makes me very happy (:
