Art Process

Mon Jan 16, 2017, 6:39 AM

Some people recently have asked me about my creative process, so I made a piece explaining some of steps I take when composing a more complex illustration such as Tom and Goldberry's First Meeting. It doesn't focus so much on the drawing technique itself, but it is more about the way I collect reference pictures and use them for inspiration when I compose my own picture. Here it is:

Or should I rather cease such rambling and focus rather on drawing? ;-)

I'm currently mostly working with watercolors and acrylics, but these sound cool, so anything about the painting process.
And tutorials sound great!

About the watercolour pencils, they are a great tool, though maybe I use them even too much. They are best for adding details to watercolour paintings, not so god for larger areas. But I don't use classic watercolours very much, partly because I am lazy to prepare them, while the pencils are easier to work with, and partly because I generally like drawing with coloured pencils. I use these:…
