I finished my dad’s underwater illustration just in time for Father’s Day! I framed it and it is ready to hand over to him this coming Sunday.
I am so pleased with how it turned out and that when I set my mind to it, I was able to get it finished in time for his special day.
To commemorate the time and work that went into it, I wanted to do something a little different and post a video showing my progress of this illustration from start to finish. It is always a lot of fun to see the progression of illustrations.
It’s made me realize that I tend to work on exterior details first, then to the forefront characters, and last I finish off the illustration by doing the background color, whether it is for the sky, or in this case, the background water. I think I always worry that I am going to mess that part up, so instead of getting it over with, I save it until the end where it can make or break my illustration. No pressure there!
I hope you all enjoy watching this short video. Let me know what you think in the comments! What comes next? My next plan is to begin coloring in and getting the illustrations ready for my Middle Grade Fantasy book, Adeline and the Mystic Berries. I can’t wait to show you more of this story through my art!
