This one was inspired by one of the bands i saw at Sonic Blast some weeks ago!
We’ve been apart from the blog for a while now in order to finish our Masters Degree. I’m gonna try something new this time. Since we never talk about our illustrations, i’m gonna try saying something about what i just created and what was on my mind at that moment. Here it goes..
This one was created directly on Photoshop with a pen tablet. I was thinking about this weekend festival Sonic Blast in Moledo, Portugal, and how hot and sunny will be! Most of the times, when i’m illustrating a character, I first try to figure out the body position and the perspective mentally. Then i draw. Erase. Draw. Erase. Draw…. you get the picture. After that comes the color. This part is always tricky. I never know what color i want to use so i just go with the flow and experiment a lot. Sometimes i fell good about my choices, sometimes i just get tired of trying and stop. The background’s usually the last and i never spend much time with it.
