Spent some time today on this Robot. He was just a simple little sketch, I hardly even thought it would be worth bringing onto the computer to work on, turns out I was wrong. Simple is sometimes best. I spent some time yesterday playing with a watercolor effect on the football kid and today I took it a bit further with this little guy. I tried to layer the colors subtly and added highlights with a white pencil brush after. I like the double outline in white also. I know as with all of my pieces, I need to work on lighting effects and color, but I think this one turned out well and I'm very excited about applying this look to more of my sketches. I had fun doing it too. Here is the original sketch...
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
