This week, I take a look at “Creative Illustration” by Andrew Loomis and share a drawing exercise from it that will instantly help you create better compositions in your artwork.
In this final part, I show you a simple digital colouring method that will work in Manga Studio or Photoshop and I offer a tips for working out where to put shadows.
In part two of this three part series of videos on how to push your drawings to the next level. I discuss the importance of having a “No quit” attitude to your work. I provide you with some motivational stories to help you keep “Plussing” your drawings courtesy of Napoleon Hill and Walt Disney. Then (As if that wasn’t enough) I take my Pirate Girl thumbnail to the clean up stage of drawing and discuss some of the design aspects of making an appealing drawing. All this and more in just over six and a half minutes.
In this tutorial, I talk about how to give your old sketches “The Push” by focusing on creating a thumbnail drawing with the most dynamic “Line of action” that you can. Also, how to get the most from using reference images in general and specifically Pinterest.
