This time I used mainly soft brushes to do the job. I still have fun 🙂
Like a lot of people, I’m stuck at home and it gives me the opportunity to draw more than usual. Here’s the second round of my portraits experiments.
I’m currently doing some experiments on semi cartoon characters, both in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. My first exercise was to draw two portraits with a « light bulb » type. Then I’m having fun doing variations on the features. It takes me a lot of time but I learn some good things.
Although I have been very busy this year, with my job as a teacher and other duties, I managed to get some free time in order to draw the things I like. I have been surprisingly productive, at least according to the time I had, and here’s the summary of the illustrations I have done. I’m confident about the fact that 2020 will give me even more opportunities to develop and improve my « little world ». It may also be the right time to go back to 3D. 🙂
I wish everyone a very happy and productive year 2020 ! Cheers !
These 3 drawings were made in 2017. It all started with sketches inspired by some furniture designed by the Memphis Group that I turned into some kind of freaky (but not too scary) monsters.
All the digital painting part was done in Affinity Photo with an old Wacom Intuos 3 tablet. I used different brushes to mimic the traditional painting and gave a rough aspect to my creatures. The choice of the tool, Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo, depends on the mood that I want to give to my drawings (« clean » or « expressive »).
