I had a breakthrough last night which was awesome, while doing the sketches for my kids book. I’ve come up with a style which I’m finally happy with. It it’s starts with me doing a pencil sketch on paper, then using an app on my phone I can cut that out. I then take that sketch and put it into the adobe draw app on my phone where I can paint it out and make the paint transparent. The great thing about that is I can adjust the transparency to see some of the scratchiness of the artwork in the sketch, which I think is providing a really cool effect. I’m really happy with the look and I think I’ll be able to now continue on finally illustrating my kids books.
