Making of Springtime

In my previous post I showed an illustration I had done earlier this year called “Springtime”. I Thought it would be nice to show a little bit the progress of making my illustrations.

The illustration is based on two characters I created earlier last year. The girl is called Marie, which I had created for a story I wanted to make (still hoping I can do this some day) The big character is an monster called Bob. Bob is Marie’s friend and has it’s own quirks. At first I had not put Bob and Marie together, I had created Bob when I was drawing some monsters for fun. But when I wanted to get a scale of how big Bob would be I made a drawing of Marie next to Bob and they just seem to fit. :)

Sadly I did not made pictures of the all of the progress of the illustration for “Springtime”. For this illustration I made a pencil sketch, which I transferred to watercolor paper using a light box. After I had transferred the image on watercolor paper with a pencil I used a waterproof fineliner to create the outlines for the drawing. The next step was to color the illustration with watercolors.

I Hope you liked the final illustration and this small look into my proces of creating it.
